Together, Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences form a higher education community that places faith in people and scientific knowledge. Leading experts in the fields of technology, health and society are changing the world at Finland’s second largest multidisciplinary higher education institution. www.tuni.fi/en
Automation Technology and Mechanical Engineering Unit (ATME) invites applications for several (at least 4) summer trainee positions in the research areas of Automation and Information networks, FAST-Lab, Innovative Hydraulics and Automation, Mechatronics and Process Control research groups.
Summer trainees will work in the research groups in many different assisting tasks. The research is related to a wide range of fields, including robotics, automation, integration and automation programming, and numerical algorithms. The objective of the Unit is to balance basic and industrially applicable research, having both performed with excellence in each of the research areas.
The positions will be filled for a fixed-term period of 3 months, commencing on 1 June 2020 or as mutually agreed. Trial period of 1 month applies.
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.
The tasks of the summer trainees will vary, depending on the needs of the research group.
Tasks include concepting, designing and party building "Tampere Cyber City" environment to be used in automation systems security education, training and research.
Modular city shall contain critical infrastructure like energy, water and traffic. Modularity must be designed so that part of the environment can be easily used in remote training locations. Environment contains physical equipment and can also utilise augmented reality. Tampere Cyber City will be connected to existing ASECyberLab environment.
Tasks include re-organisation of research and education laboratories. The work consists of robotics, automation, system integration, and automation programming.
1. Improve simulation skills! work on further development of zonal hydraulics concept for the electrification of existing off-road mobile machinery.
2. Hands on experience! Design and build a test rig for testing with ability to record and capture cavitation in first transparent cylinder
Tasks include software testing and development of the autonomous service robot. Testing and development will be done in laboratory environment and in real operating environment of the robot.
Development and testing of the autonomous underwater vehicle. Testing and development is a part of aColor-project and will be done in field conditions.
Tasks include developing electronic learning activities and other tasks within the TUNI Moodle platform of the basic course of automation. The trainee will be working in close collaboration with the person responsible.
Working in the process control laboratory e.g., organizing the environment and its equipment as well as updating the software and hardware of the laboratory. The trainee may also enhance the current virtual laboratory.
We are looking for science and engineering students who enjoy problem-solving and are able to think independently while also being able to work in multinational research environment and have good social and team working skills. Potential candidate could be e.g. a 1-4-year student, who has successfully completed his/her studies e.g. in automation or mechanical engineering. A good command of English, both in writing and in oral presentations, will be an asset.
The summer trainee program is 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, moreover, are encouraged to discuss with the research group professors avout BSc and MSc theses topics, related to the trainee period. Most of our summer trainees, in fact, stay for a master thesis, and they decide later on to continue they research career with a PhD.
Please submit your application by the online application form. Closing date for applications is on Monday, 17 February 2020 (24:00 EET / 22:00 UTC).
Applications and attachments must be written in English. Applications must be enclosed with CV, letter of motivation and transcript of studies in pdf format.
You can apply for two positions with the one application form. It is also possible to indicate your priority of research groups in the application form.
