Physics Laboratory Assistant

You should be interested in the natural sciences and have fun performing experiments if you want to train as a physical laboratory assistant.

Physics laboratory assistants prepare, perform, and document physical measurements and test series. In the process, they examine the composition, properties, and quality of a variety of materials and systems. They test the corrosive properties of metals or the electrochemical behavior of alloys. The maintenance and servicing of laboratory equipment, however, also belong to the tasks of a physics laboratory assistant.

At the Schunk Group, physics laboratory assistants are used, for example in research and development, quality control, application technology, work preparation, or the laboratory. In these areas, they perform physical tests on carbon, graphite, or fiber-reinforced materials. They work on projects and take care of the process control of manufacturing processes.

During your training, you will work in the physics laboratory. There, you will learn how to prepare, perform, and document physical measurements and test series, for example. You will test the composition, properties, and quality of our materials. The maintenance and servicing of laboratory equipment, however, also belong to the tasks of a physics laboratory assistant.
