Location: Geneva, Switzerland

CERN is looking for an undergraduate student of a CERN Member State nationality in a technical field for a practical training period or an opportunity for the students to complete their final project.

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research is a truly unique organisation. A genuine collaboration between countries, universities and scientists, driven not by profit margins, but by a commitment to create and share knowledge. The Technical Student Programme is aimed to undergraduate students in applied physics, engineering or computing, to spend a training period of 4 to 12 months during the course of their studies in Geneva, Switzerland. The selected candidates will not start with the internship before February 2016.

Eligibility:

  • You are a national of a CERN Member State and studying in a Member State. Romanian, Serbian and Turkish nationals are also eligible.
    Students from Non-Member States are able to apply only if they have been residing in a Member State for the last 5 years and are currently enrolled in a Member State educational establishment.
  • You should have completed at least 18 months of your undergraduate studies.
  • You can stay at least 4 or at most 12 months remaining registered as a full-time student. To be able to fully benefit from a technical studentship we advise students to opt for the longest period possible.
  • You have a good knowledge of English OR French.

Benefits:

  • A monthly living allowance to cover the expenses of a single person in the Geneva area.
  • A health insurance for illnesses and accidents of professional or non-professional nature.
  • Travel expenses (on a lump sum basis).

Application:

  • Application has to be submitted online. Once your application form has been submitted, you will receive an acknowledgement e-mail which contains a link to the CERN “Report on candidate” form. You must forward this link to at least one referee (Professor preferably but they also accept a supervisor from a previous internship).
  • Students must also upload their most recent academic transcript (official document giving an overview of your marks), as well as a CV (in English or French) in order to complete your application.
