Applicants must be national of a CERN Member or Associate State;
A PHD, if the applicant is applying in experimental or theoretical physics;
A university degree, If the applicant is applying in applied science, computing or engineering;
Candidates with an MSc or higher diploma should have no more than 10 years relevant experience;
Candidates with only a BSc or technical engineer diploma should have no more than 4 years relevant experience.
The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is offering 200 fellowships to profesionals all over the world interested to work at their facilities. These fellowships include health care insurance, travel expenses and monthly allowance. Already acccepting applicantions, its deadline is due September 5, 2016.
The Fellowship Programme awards approximately 200 Fellowships per year. Around half are for research work (experimental or theoretical physics) under a Senior Fellowship and half are for advanced development work and related research in a broad range of applied science, computing and engineering either under a Junior or a Senior Fellowship depending on the qualifications and experience of the individual.
Fellowships are intended for recent graduates from university or higher technical institutes, or university postgraduates who want to work in a research group. Research fellows in experimental or theoretical physics normally have terminated their studies for a doctorate (PhD or equivalent) while Fellowships in applied science, computing and engineering are open to recent graduates at Bachelor level and above.
Fellowships are normally granted for two years initially, while extensions for part or all of a third year are granted only in exceptional circumstances.
After having become familiar with the activities of the Laboratory, Fellows are encouraged to contribute to bridging the gap between scientists and the general public by serving as CERN Guides typically 2 hours per month.
CERN Staff members are not eligible to apply for a Fellowship.
Individuals who have held a VIA contract at CERN are not eligible to apply for a Fellowship.
Please note that a person may only benefit from Fellow status at CERN for a maximum of 36 months. There is no possibility of exceptions. The minimum duration of a Fellow contract is 6 months.
What is Included:
Applications from candidates in particle physics are forwarded by us to the appropriate* National Delegations in the Member States for appraisal. (*The appropriate National Delegation for each candidate is usually considered to be the same as the passport nationality of the candidate. However, applications from Member State candidates who did/are doing their PhD in a different Member State from their passport nationality are generally submitted to that Delegation. If relevant, candidates should state their preference of Member State on their application (in the "Motivation" section)).
Applications in all disciplines from nationals of countries who are Associate Members may be forwarded to a panel of national experts for appraisal.
All applications for Fellowships are considered by the Associates and Fellows Committee which meets twice per year, usually in May and November.
Candidates may be contacted before the Committee but any formal offer of a Fellowship position can only be made by HR Department after the relevant Committee meeting.
Successful applicants are normally expected to take up their appointments within 3 months of the start date they specify in their application form. Changes to the start date can be discussed on a case-by-case basis and exceptions are made for Theoretical physicists who apply for the November committee to start the following autumn.
The results of the Selection Committee are communicated by email to all candidates within 1 week of the Selection Committee date.
Candidates for research fellowships (Theoretical and Experimental Physics) should also include a CV containing:
For physics candidates who wish to be considered for both research and applied science types of Fellowship, you are expected to make clear your relevant applied science skillset in your motivations and/or research statement.
Please do not upload your thesis nor your final project report.
At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. They use the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives the physicists clues about how the particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature.
