Описание

CERN is the European Organization for Nuclear Research, the world’s largest particle physics centre.

Founded in 1954, the Laboratory was one of Europe’s first joint ventures, and has become an outstanding example of international collaboration. From the original 12 signatories of the CERN convention, membership has grown to the present 22 Member States¹.

CERN offers a wide choice of student and graduate programmes ranging from the highly successful Summer Student

Programme, through to internships via its Technical & Doctoral Student Programmes, as well as graduate & research opportunities in the form of the Graduate Engineering Training Scheme and the prestigious CERN Fellowship programme.

Summer Student Programme, cern.ch/summies

The Summer Student Programme is aimed at undergraduate students in physics, engineering and computing to spend between 8 and 13 weeks between June and September in a research team at CERN who:

  • have completed at least three years of full-time studies at university level.
  • have not already worked at CERN before (e.g. as a User or Technical Student).

Facts & Figures

  • The Summer Student Selection takes place in March each year.
  • Around 140 Member State students are selected and around 130 Non Member State students
  • The subsistence allowance amounts to 90 CHF per day (WE included).
  • Summer Students hold a contract of association with the Organization which includes health insurance
  • coverage.

Real Feedback/Quotes from Summer Students

  • “How to learn & have fun at the same time – be a summie.”
  • “Can’t imagine a better way to spend my summer.”
  • “I don’t know if we were particularly lucky, but I really enjoyed every aspect of the summer student program: work, lectures and social life (a lot!).”

Technical Student Programme, cern.ch/tech

The Technical Student Programme is aimed at undergraduate students in applied physics, engineering or computing to spend between 4 and 14 months at CERN who:

  • are currently enrolled as a full-time student at university or advanced technical level in a CERN Member or Associate Member State and have completed at least 18 months of technical undergraduate studies.

Facts & Figures

  • Selection Committee meets twice a year in June and September.
  • There are around 200 Technical Students at CERN
  • The subsistence allowance amounts to 3283 CHF per month.
  • Technical Students hold a contract of association with the Organization which includes health insurance coverage.

Real Feedback/Quotes from Technical students

  • “It’s a great place to start a career, it’s a great place to learn new skills, make new friends.”
  • “The main advantage of working here is the International environment.”
  • “This internship gave me the opportunity to meet important people, especially in the research fields.”
  • “I would tell students not think it twice, just to apply, they won’t regret it.”
  • “Awesome place, awesome people: beautiful area, simply great!”

Doctoral Student Programme

The Doctoral Student Programme is aimed at postgraduate students preparing a doctoral thesis in applied physics, engineering or computing to spend between 12 to 36 months at CERN who:

  • have started or are about to start a doctoral programme at a CERN Member or Associate Member State university.
  • foresee that the work envisaged at CERN is all or part of the thesis work required to obtain their PhD.

Facts & Figures

  • Selection Committee meets twice a year in June and September.
  • There are around 180 Doctoral Students at CERN
  • The subsistence allowance amounts to 3679 CHF per month.
  • Doctoral Students hold a contract of association with the Organization which includes health insurance coverage.

Administrative Student Programme, cern.ch/admin

The Administrative Student Programme is aimed at undergraduate students specializing in administration, to spend a training period of 4 to 14 months during the course of their studies.

  • are currently enrolled as a full-time student at university or advanced technical level in a CERN Member or Associate Member State and have completed at least 18 months of technical undergraduate studies.

Facts & Figures

  • Selection Committee meets twice a year in June and September.
  • There are around 30 administrative students at CERN
  • The subsistence allowance amounts to 3283 CHF per month.
  • Administrative Students hold a contract of association with the Organization which includes health insurance coverage.

Fellowship Programme & Graduate Engineering Training Scheme, cern.ch/fell

The Fellowship Programme is aimed at Member or Associate State scientists and engineers seeking a position in research physics or applied sciences. A limited number of places for non-Member State nationals are available. Fellowships are normally granted for two years. Extensions for part or all of a third year are granted only in exceptional circumstances.

The Programme is subdivided into:

  • Junior Fellowship Programme: open to Member State candidates at the Bachelors level and to those with up to four years of relevant experience post-MSc.
  • Senior Fellowship Programme for candidates with a Ph.D., or at least four years of experience post-MSc.
  • Senior Fellows' recruitment criteria is based on academic and research excellence.

Fellows in theoretical or experimental particle physics have a free choice of the research topic that they wish to study, while applied science fellows are assigned to a project determined in advance.

The Graduate Engineering Training (“GET”) scheme offers excellent Fellowship opportunities in the applied science and engineering fields.

Facts & Figures

  • Selection Committee meets twice a year in May and November.
  • It selects ~200 Fellows per year (currently in the ratio 20:80 for research/applied science Fellows and 40:60 for Junior/Senior profiles).
  • There are currently over 600 Fellows at CERN
  • Monthly stipends range from 5165CHF to 8043CHF.
  • Fellows hold a full employment contract with CERN including pension and health insurance coverage.

Real Feedback/Quotes from Fellows

  • “An ideal place to follow the most recent ideas in physics and start new collaborations.”
  • “A very rewarding experience.”
  • “A great environment to get started in the professional world.”
  • “Would recommend it to anyone who has just finished his education.”
  • “This is a great place to be using cutting edge technologies that tend to arrive later in the other industries.”
  • “Learning new skills. Working with fun, talented people.”
  • “Good seminars on different subjects; discussions with world experts.“

Technician Training Experience, cern.ch/tte

The TTE is aimed at Member or Associate Member State technicians who are looking to get a great professional experience for their future career or before their advanced studies

Facts & Figures

  • A pilot started in 2011 but has had tremendous success and positive feedback
  • Currently around 60 TTEs at CERN
  • Monthly stipends range are 4465 CHF.
  • TTES hold a full employment contract with CERN including pension and health insurance coverage.

Real Feedback/Quotes from TTEs

  • A satisfaction survey has been sent out to both TTEs and supervisors and the results are incredibly positive
  • from all points of view.
