For many years, CERN has operated an international Fellowship programme, offering scientists and engineers challenging opportunities in particle physics research, and in related fields of physics and technology. The programme provides an excellent possibility for work, research and constant training to those who are interested in science and technology at the highest level.
CERN is proud to be involved in COFUND, a European Commission Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action, to stimulate mobility and career development through fellowship programmes.
What is COFUND?
COFUND is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Programme and complements the CERN Fellowship programme by offering 3-year contracts instead of the standard 2-year duration, as well as the possibility to spend up to 12 months of the Fellowship at a university, research institute or an industrial company of their choice outside CERN.
Who are the COFUND Fellows?
COFUND Fellows are the highest-ranked applicants. The possibility of spending up to one year outside CERN fosters international cooperation and enables researchers to gain an insight into leading fields of knowledge of technology and science to become the innovators of tomorrow.
What are the main fields of this programme?
COFUND Fellows may work in fields including engineering, particle physics and applied sciences.
