Aalto University is a new multidisciplinary university in the fields of technology, business, and art and de-sign. It opens up new possibilities for strong multidisciplinary education and research. Aalto University has 20 000 students and a staff of 5 000 including 350 professors.

The positions are located in Department of Automation and Systems Technology. The research environ-ment provides excellent opportunities for open-minded co-operation with the highly motivated research staff as well as with top international partners.

The Department of Automation and Systems Technology is looking for


For June – August 2013 in the following research groups

1) Autonomous Systems

Autonomous Field machines – robotics and control algorithm programming. Programming experience in Matlab, Simulink and C# environments as prerequisite. More information: or contact Timo Oksanen by e-mail (

2) Intelligent Robotics

Do you want to make robots more intelligent? Intelligent Robotics group looks for summer trainees to join the group's research efforts on intelligent robotic systems and robotic vision with an emphasis on developing methods and systems that cope with imperfect knowledge and uncertain senses. You need successful studies in automation and systems technology, computer science, mathematics, or another related field. More information: or contact prof. Ville Kyrki by email (

3) Micro- and nanorobotics

Micro- and nanorobotics is an emerging and rapidly growing multidisciplinary field that crosses the do-mains of robotics, micro- and nanotechnology, and artificial intelligence. It also involves some aspects of physics, surface science, and biology.

We are looking for highly motivated young students (bachelor or Master level) who are eager to explore this fascinating research area. We expect that the student has excellent study record, strong interests in academic career, but also eager to work hands-on. The summer trainee job will provide you a great re-search training opportunity, where a research topic will be selected based on the mutual interests of the applicant and the research group. The research training will be supervised by senior researchers and also involve dynamic interactions with other members of the group. The success of this research training can lead to extended duration or master degree thesis work and postgraduate studies. More information: or contact Ville Liimatainen by e -mail (
