Studentships in Summer (Non Member State Nationals)

Deadline to submit applications: 
31-JAN-14

How do you plan to spend your summer? How does getting involved in some of the world’s biggest experiments sound? This is more than summer work. It’s the chance to join CERN in Geneva – getting involved in the day-to-day work of our multicultural teams. Attend lectures, visit CERN facilities, take part in discussions and workshops with people who are leaders in their fields. In fact, it will be a summer like nowhere else on Earth.

  • You are a national of any State other than a CERN Member State.
  • You are a university-level undergraduate (Bachelor or Masters) at least in your third year.
  • You will remain registered as a student during your stay at CERN. If you expect to graduate in the summer of attending, you are also eligible to apply.
  • You have not worked at CERN before (e.g. as a User)
  • You have a good knowledge of English; knowledge of French would be an advantage.
