Accelerate your career at CERN and take part in today’s biggest scientific breakthroughs!
The Fellowship Programme is addressed to graduates from universities or higher technical institutes in a wide range of applied sciences, computing and engineering with limited or no work experience. Senior Fellowships are awarded to doctorate (PhD or equivalent) graduates whereas Junior Fellowship are intended for BSc or MSc graduates looking to work in a research group.
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.
Fellows come from all around the world!

Diversity has been an integral part of CERN’s mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization. Employing a diverse workforce is central to our success.
We remind you that you are applying for a programme and not a specific job posting, therefore to help us to offer you an interesting work project we recommend that candidates outside of the particle physics field explain how their research interests relate to CERN’s activities. This can either be included in the Motivation section of the application form or in a separate motivation letter.
Find here a list of some of the projects you can take part in at CERN as a Fellow. Note that this list is not exhaustive and at the time of the committee more opportunities are available.
