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.
Diversity has been an integral part of CERN's mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization.
Welcome to the Junior Fellowship Programme!
This Programme is aimed at graduates from universities or higher technical institutes, from a wide range of applied sciences, computing and engineering disciplines and 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:
CERN would very much like to benefit from your expertise, commitment and passion. In return, CERN will provide you with:
