Studentships in Summer 2018 (Non Member State Nationals)

Nationals of Cyprus, Pakistan, Serbia, Turkey, Slovenia, India or Ukraine: please apply for the Member State programme
The CERN Summer Student Program offers undergraduate and junior post-graduate students of physics, computing and engineering a unique opportunity to join in the day-to-day work of research teams participating in experiments at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. Beyond the outstanding first-class scientific value of their stay, the selected students will find working in a multidisciplinary and multicultural environment an extremely enriching personal experience. It is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make valuable and long lasting contacts with other students and scientists from all over the World.
 
In addition to the work in the experimental teams, Summer Students attend a series of lectures specially prepared for them. Several scientists and engineers from around the world share their knowledge about a wide range of topics in the fields of theoretical and experimental particle physics, engineering and computing. Visits to the CERN facilities are also part of the Programme, as well as discussion sessions and workshops. Attendance requires a presence of 8 weeks on site and the possible dates of stay are the following:
11 June to 03 August (covering entire lecture period)
18 June to 10 August (covering entire lecture period)
25 June to 17 August (covering entire lecture period)
02 July to 24 August (in exceptional circumstances only)
 
Information on the organised activities can be found on the Summer Student Info Page.

Un nombre très limité de stages est disponible pendant la période d'été uniquement. Le CERN accueille et finance des étudiants qui sont ressortissants des pays non Membres de l'Organisation.

En plus d'un séjour d'un intérêt scienti¿que de premier plan, les étudiants sélectionnés auront l'occasion de vivre une expérience très enrichissante en travaillant dans un milieu international où se combinent de multiples disciplines. Ils doivent participer aux cours dispensés pendant les deux mois du stage et soumettre un rapport de stage à la fin de leur séjour.
