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 process gives physicists clues about how particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Find out more on home.cern.
Diversity has been an integral part of CERN’s mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization.
Imagine getting involved in work that is changing the world and imagine doing it before you’ve left university. Imagine working in an international environment and having a great quality of life.
Take part in CERN’s Administrative Student Programme!
There’s no better way to learn than on-the-job. When that job happens to be in a world-famous organisation and centre of scientific excellence, even better. If you’re an undergraduate in Administration and are looking for a practical training period or a place to complete your final project, you could spend 2 to 12 months at CERN during the course of your studies (Bachelor or Master). If your university requires or encourages you to acquire work experience through an internship, imagine doing this at CERN in Geneva.
It could be in any of the following disciplines: translation, human resources, advanced secretarial work, business administration, logistics, law, finance, accounting, library and information science, engineering management, science communication, education, audiovisual, communication and public relations, psychology, audit are but a few examples of the many domains in which successful applicants will learn and contribute their knowledge.
A panel of CERN experts meets three times a year in February, June and October, to review all applications, and typically around 50 students are selected to join the programme annually.
In order to qualify for a place on the programme you will need to meet the following requirements:
Please note that in case you are studying in a STEM/engineering field, you are not eligible to apply for this position. Instead, please consider applying for the CERN Technical Student programme.
CERN would very much like to benefit from your expertise, commitment and passion. In return, CERN will provide you with:
