Open Positions

Recruitment of Junior Researchers in ETHOS Lab Spring Semester 2017

ETHOS Lab is run by a staff of researchers and students, some of which are volunteers. This page details any open positions the lab has in this regard. Currently we have open positions as Junior Researcher in the lab.

Junior Researcher  
We are recruiting ITU students for the role as Junior Researcher in our evolving ETHOS research lab for the spring semester.
A junior researcher (JR) is a talented, enthusiastic student who is interested in being part of an experimental research lab while contributing to informal knowledge sharing.

As a JR you are first of all to conduct and share a research project within the lab. Apply for the position by choosing one of the following categories:

  1. Your own concrete project inspired by or related to one of the ETHOS research themes
  2. A proposal for how you want to develop a tool or explore an idea with relevance to ETHOS Lab
  3. Engage in a pre-defined ETHOS research proposal determined by researchers, whom you will collaborate with (Please send an e-mail to for a list of proposals)

It is not required for the project to be ECTS related or having an affiliated supervisor, but we recommend interacting with relevant researchers in the process.

The Community, workshops, data-sprints
As a JR you will be part of a community of students and researchers that aim to mutually inspire and learn in the process. We will have several workshops, data sprints, and social hangouts. As the lab is community driven it is expected that you engage in, and contribute to, the lab community and participate in events and workshops. It is also important that you find motivation in sharing your skills and the progress of your research.
