Brief description:

The CERN Summer Student Programme offers students pursuing bachelor’s or master’s degrees in physics, computing, engineering and maths a unique opportunity to join in the day-to-day work of research teams participating in experiments at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. Beyond the outstanding first-class scientific value of their stay, the selected students will find working in a multidisciplinary and multicultural environment an extremely enriching personal experience. It is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make valuable and long-lasting contacts with other students and scientists from all over the world.

In addition to the work in the experimental teams, Summer Students attend a series of lectures specially prepared for them. Several scientists from around the world share their knowledge about a wide range of topics in the fields of theoretical and experimental particle physics and computing. Visits to the accelerators and experimental areas are also part of the programme, as well as discussion sessions, workshops and a poster session. Students are required to prepare a short report on their work at CERN, which should be submitted at the end of their stay. Students come for between eight weeks (minimum stay) and 13 weeks (maximum stay).

Focus Areas:

Applied Physics, Computing, Mathematics, Electricity, Electronics, Mechanical or Civil engineering, instrumentation, materials science, radiation protection, safety and environmental protection, ultra-high vacuum.
Administrative fields such as translation, advanced secretarial work, accounting, legal services, human resources, logistics librarianship.
