I am almost halfway through my Master's studies and before getting into the process of writing my thesis, I wish to work in the field a bit to gain hands-on experience, I wouldn't really mind if the position will not be paid. But what I really and absolutely need is some practical work and leveraging what I have learned.
I have been searching a lot, for many weeks and months, but it seems that finding positions online (in Europe, and specifically central Europe) is quite impossible.. Are there any specific channels I should aim for? Or is it because that the positions are not published online?
Any feedback will be highly appreciated.
Your chances of going abroad for an internship are slim to none. Who have you contacted in Finland? Doing thesis work in industry is rather common practice. For example VTT does lots of bioinfo stuff..
To people reading this thread in the future, don't take the guy above seriously.
