CERN Internships for Students with Disabilities

Students in a technical or scientific field are invited to join the international environment of CERN for an internship. The duration of the program is between one and six months. You will receive a monthly allowance of 1516 Swiss Francs (equivalent of 1440 Eur).


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.

One of CERN’s key missions is education. Professionals will share their practical knowledge and expertise with students who are committed and passionate about their chosen field. The internship is for students whose main field of study is in applied physics, computing, mathematics, electricity, electronics, mechanical, electrical or civil engineering.

Candidates will need to have full insurance cover valid in the Geneva area for medical expenses, work and private accidents as well as any disability arising from professional and non-professional illness and accidents.

The application process is ongoing.
