Junior Fellowship Programme at CERN

This Programme is aimed at graduates from universities or higher technical institutes in a wide range of applied sciences, computing and engineering with limited or no work experience, looking to work in a research group. The deadline is on 2 September 2019.

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 program will provide

  • An employment contract for between 6 months (minimum) up to a maximum of 36 months.
  • A stipend ranging from 5,239 to 6,506 Swiss Francs per month (net of tax).

  • Depending on your individual circumstances: an installation grant, family, child and infant allowances as well as travel expenses to and from Geneva.
  • 5 days of paid leave per month.
