Research Scientist

I work as a research scientist in Vaisala’s Industrial Measurements Products and Systems. My university background is in physical chemistry and currently I take care of prototype testing and developing in Microsensor Development team. This includes a lot of hands-on laboratory work with test setups in addition to simulations and data analysis on computer. Overall my work is a nice mixture of early phase brainstorming and developing prototypes into world’s leading measurement products.

Giant Leap is Vaisala's internship program for 3+ year students in a university or polytechnic. We'll hire up to 20 students for a period of three months over the summer to our head office in Vantaa Finland and our US head office in Louisville, Colorado. As a Giant Leap intern, you'll work either individually, in pairs or together with experienced Vaisala employees on real-life projects that have genuine business relevance.
