European Organization for Nuclear Research Studentships in Summer for Non Member State Nationals

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 have not worked at CERN before with any other status (Trainee, Technical Student, User...) for more than 3 months.
  • You have a good knowledge of English; knowledge of French would be an advantage.
