Help us shape our future!

As one of the leading suppliers of individual microscopy system solutions, we look for and provide answers to the current questions and trends. Excellent knowledge of the industry, high professional qualification and outstanding technical competence, combined with an extraordinary degree of enthusiasm, creativity and commitment, are the foundation for our successful products. We are always looking for committed students as interns as well as students on a work/study program, and offer possibilities for work on a bachelor's or a master's degree. You will work independently at an international company, will gain professional experience, and will make valuable contacts.

For you, these advantages mean:
• Practice-oriented insights into different company divisions
• Challenging tasks and important projects
• Excellent support structure with regular feedback discussions
• Teamwork based on trust, openness and dialog
• A pleasant working environment with flat hierarchies and fast decision-making processes
• Attractive offers for continued training


For students and the company alike, an internship is the best possibility to get to know each other. Here you will team up with experienced employees to work on select projects and will be given responsibility early on. We feel it is important for you to take away important impulses for your future professional development from your time with us.

Work/study activities

As a student on a work/study program, you have the possibility to assist us actively in daily routine tasks up to 20 hours a week during the semester, and even more during semester breaks. Here as well you will work independently on select projects, and permanent OSIS employees will always be there for you for discussion and for assistance. This way you will acquire valuable, specialized professional experience for the future.

Thesis work

Ideally you have already finished an internship or work/study program at OSIS and would like to conclude your studies with a practice-oriented doctoral, master's or bachelor's thesis? Then take the initiative and arouse our interest with your suggested subjects, or ask us for possible subjects. We'll help you in personal discussions to plan the contents and structure of your thesis and will accompany you through the additional development process with the advising departments. We look forward to hearing your ideas.

We look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for considering Olympus.
