The FTEC (Formacion en las TEcnologias del CERN) Trainee Programme has been established through a bilateral agreement between CERN and CIEMAT (Centro de Investigaciones Energéticas, Medioambientales y Tecnológicas) in Spain.
This programme is aimed at recent graduates from university or higher technical institutes seeking further training in a wide area of projects. Selected trainees will join a team working at CERN and have the opportunity to enlarge their knowledge through participation in the hi-tech activities of the laboratory, in fields such as superconducting and resistive magnets, power converters and their associated electronics, cryogenics and vacuum technologies and electronics for detectors, including radiation resistance issues, and related activities on infrastructures with a potential industrial return.
The opening of the 2018 call is pending and should happen in the first quarter of 2018.
The 20 available projects which were considered in the 2017 call can be found here.
Up to 20 trainees can be selected depending on the quality of the candidates and technical suitability to the program.
