Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences create a unique environment for multidisciplinary, inspirational and high-impact research and education. Our universities community has its competitive edges in technology, health and society. www. tuni.fi/en

The Materials Science and Environmental Engineering Unit invites applications for several summer trainee positions. Summer trainees will work in the research groups in many different tasks.

Chemistry and Advanced Materials(CAM ) is seeking for 6-8 summer trainees. Chemistry is the central science for building sustainable future. In the CAM cluster, we foster interdisciplinary solutions for contemporary problems through the design and fabrication of functional compounds and new materials. We are broadly interested in various application areas, including drug release, solar-driven chemistry, soft robotics, and new energy technologies, and conduct state-of-the-art research in all these areas. The summer trainee positions include, but are not limited to, the following topics: (i) Synthesis of organic and photoactive compounds ; (ii) Photoactivation of catalytic reactions ; (iii) Lead-free perovskite solar cells ; (iv) Lab-on-a-chip-based breast cancer models ; (v) Organic electrochemical transistors. The tasks will be scientifically driven, i.e., the students will work on projects aiming towards scientific publications. The trainees will be instructed by postdocs or PhD students, but after getting familiar with their research topics, are expected to carry out the assigned tasks independently. If you are majoring in chemistry, physics or materials science, please be in touch in case of further questions, or simply apply for a position!

Engineering Materials Science (EMS ) utilises new breakthrough materials to address future challenges related to the environment, energy and human welfare. We develop solutions for all materials used in industrial applications, such as metals, ceramics, elastomers, composites and paper-based materials, as well as study and develop different engineering coatings and surfaces. We take pride in our excellent quality of education; our teachers, laboratories and research are at the cutting edge of materials science in Finland. Summer trainee position can be general tasks related to the EMS or laboratory work carried out at the research groups depending on the interest of applicant. We are looking at 2-3 trainees for summer period.

The goal of the research of Bio and circular research group (BIC ) is to promote a cleaner and safer future for the benefit of people and the environment. The group focuses on development and implementation of biological and thermochemical processes for sustainable conversion of municipal and industrial wastes, wastewaters and flue gas streams to biochemicals and biofuels as well as for recovery of nutrients and metals. We are looking for 1-2 summer trainees either in our research groups or in supporting developing of teaching, depending on the interest of the applicant.

Requirements:

We are looking for BSc and MSc students who dare to take initiative and have good team working and communication skills. A good command of English, both in writing and in oral presentations, will be an asset.

We offer:

The positions will be filled typically for a fixed-term period of three months or as mutually agreed. Trial period of 1 month applies.

As a research assistant you have the perfect chance for being part of a vibrant, international and multicultural research environment, which will not only provide insight on the research world itself, but will also represent the perfect occasion to get in touch with cutting-edge research.

Summer trainees are encouraged to discuss with the research group professors about BSc and MSc thesis topics related to the training period. Many of our summer trainees, in fact, also conduct their Master's Thesis with us.

Salary:

The salary will be based on both the job demand level and the employee's personal performance in accordance with the Finnish University Salary System. According to the criteria applied to teaching and research staff, the position of the Research Assistant is placed on the job demand level 1. In addition, employees will receive performance-based salary, which for Research Assistants is based on their study credits.

How to apply:

Please submit your application by the online application form. Closing date for applications is on Monday , 19 February 2023 (23:59 EET / UTC +2).

Applications and attachments must be written in English. Applications must be enclosed with CV, letter of motivation and transcript of studies in pdf- format.

Please indicate in the application form your choice of research area (CAM / EMS / BIC).

Tampereen yliopisto ja Tampereen ammattikorkeakoulu muodostavat yhdessä Suomen toiseksi suurimman monitieteisen, innostavan ja vaikuttavan tutkimus- ja oppimisyhteisön. Korkeakouluyhteisömme osaamiskärjet ovat tekniikka, terveys ja yhteiskunta. Lue lisää: www. tuni.fi.

Materiaalitieteen ja ympäristötekniikan yksikkö hakee kesäharjoittelijoita (vähintään 9 kpl) kolmelle tutkimusalueelle: Bio- ja kiertotalous, Kemia ja uudet materiaalit, Tarjoamme kesäharjoittelijoille sekä kokeellisia että laskennallisia työtehtäviä sekä opetuksen kehittämiseen liittyviä tehtäviä. Kesäharjoittelijan tehtävästä voi olla mahdollista jatkaa diplomityöhön. Bio- ja kiertotalouden tutkimuksen keskiössä ovat ympäristö-, energia- ja biotekniikan prosessit ja järjestelmät kestäviin materiaalikiertoihin sekä kemikaalien, materiaalien ja polttoaineiden tuottamiseen.Kemian tutkimus keskittyy uusiin toiminnallisiin materiaaleihin ja niihin pohjautuviin teknologioihin. Materiaaliopissa kehitämme uusia materiaaleja ja materiaalirakenteita sekä niiden tutkimusmenetelmiä tavoitteena kestävämmät materiaalit.
