Job Description/Responsibility

  • At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Using the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter - fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Find out more on http://home.cern.
  • Diversity has been an integral part of CERN's mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization.
  • Job Description
  • Imagine getting involved in work that is changing the world and imagine doing it before you’ve left university.
  • Imagine working in an international environment and having a great quality of life.
  • Put all these ingredients together to make this imagination a reality.
  • Take part in CERN’s Doctoral Student Programme! 
  • This is a chance to work on your thesis while spending up to 36 months at the forefront of science. Whether you’ve already chosen a subject or are still making your decision, if your specialism is Applied Physics, Engineering or Computing, this is an invitation to further your knowledge in a truly unique organization. In fact, it’s an invitation to get involved in world-famous experiments of unprecedented scale and scope. An invitation to join an environment like nowhere else on Earth.
  • You will have the opportunity to work in a diversity of fields at the cutting edge of technology: applied physics, IT, mathematics, electricity, electronics, mechanical or civil engineering, instrumentation for accelerators and particle physics experiments, materials science, radiation protection, safety and environmental protection, science communication, surveying, ultra-high vacuum are but a few of the examples of the many domains in which successful applicants will learn and contribute their knowledge.
  • The following link provides examples of Doctoral student projects (http://careers.cern/doct-projects) with numbers to identify them. If any of these are of specific interest for you, you will be asked to provide their corresponding number during the application process. Please note this is not mandatory nor a guarantee that these projects will be the ones for which you are selected: you may be selected on another project that matches your profile.
  • Note: Students specialising in theoretical or experimental particle physics are not eligible to apply for this programme.
