Training position or seasonal employment at Luke

In the future, Luke will require young talent from a broad range of fields who share Luke’s values. We aim to conduct top research to solve practical problems and are seeking an encouraging organisation with a sense of community, and we are working hard to this end. Trainees work in different phases of the research process, ranging from the collection of data to the analysis and documentation of results. In training positions, trainees can complete a training period as part of their studies or write their thesis. Here, students seeking a career as a researcher or students of communication, IT or HR management can apply for a training position. Do you want to join us in building a sustainable future?

Seasonal positions

Our seasonal positions have been built around our unique research infrastructure, and they may involve the National Forest Inventory, forest breeding and graft production, crop production during the growing season, cowsheds, farms, migratory fish monitoring or other research assistant positions in our ongoing research projects. Seasonal employees work as research assistants, research technicians or fish farmers, for example. Seasonal employees can be students who are finishing their studies or graduated students.

Luke participates in the Responsible Summer Job campaign ( We comply with the principles of a good, just and fair summer job. Our employees can have an impact on their tasks and do interesting and meaningful work. Here, every new employee will be provided with proper induction and guidance. It is important to us that every trainee or seasonal employee feels like they are part of Luke and experience the joy of learning something new!
