Junior Fellowship Programme

 

CERN is dedicated to promoting the role of women in science, and, therefore, explicitly invites women to apply.

At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Using the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter – fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Find out more on http://home.cern. Diversity has been an integral part of CERN’s mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization.

 

Job Description

Welcome to the Junior Fellowship Programme

This Programme is aimed at graduates from universities or higher technical institutes in a wide range of applied sciences, computing and engineering with limited or no work experience, looking to work in a research group.

Please note that you are applying for a programme and not a specific job. In order to help us offer you an interesting work project, we recommend that you let us know how your research interests and skills relate to CERN’s diverse activities. You can include this during the online application process form or in a separate motivation letter.

In order to qualify for a place on the programme you will need to meet the following requirements:

  • You are a national of a CERN Member or Associate Member State (https://home.cern/about/member-states).
  • You have graduated, or are about to graduate (within six months from the date of the committee), with a university degree (BSc or MSc level) and have no more than 4 years’ relevant experience after obtaining your degree. Kindly note that experience prior to the latest obtained degree will not be taken into account for the calculation of your overall years of experience.
  • Please note that CERN Staff members are not eligible to apply for a Fellowship.
