2022 CERN Senior Applied Fellowship Program
If you hold a PhD (or are about to hold one) and your specific field of interest is experimental or theoretical physics, you can apply for this senior research fellowship.
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.
We have provided the eligibility criteria, requirements, and application procedure in this article. read through to gain the most.
About CERN Fellowship
This program is aimed at graduates from universities or higher technical institutes in a wide range of applied sciences, computing, and engineering with between 4 and 10 years of experience. Senior Fellowships are intended for MSc or PhD graduates looking to work in a research group.
Please remember that you are applying for a program and not a specific job. In order to get an interesting work project, for those of you outside of the particle physics field, ensure you explain how your research interests and skills relate to CERN’s diverse activities. You can include this during the online application process form or in a separate motivation letter.
In order to qualify for a place on the program you will need to meet the following requirements:
- You are a national of a CERN Member or Associate Member State (https://home.cern/about/member-states). A limited number of positions are also available to candidates from Non-Member States.
- You have a PhD, or at least 4 years’ relevant experience since the completion of your MSc (or the equivalent diploma which gives access to doctoral programmes), and in both cases a maximum limit of 10 years’ experience after completion of your MSc.
- Please note that CERN Staff members are not eligible to apply for a Fellowship.
CERN would very much like to benefit from your expertise, commitment and passion. In return, CERN will provide you with:
- An employment contract for between six months (minimum) up to a maximum of 36 months.
- A stipend ranging from 7,201 to 8,178 Swiss Francs per month (net of tax).
- Coverage by CERN’s comprehensive health scheme (for yourself, your spouse and children), and membership of the CERN Pension Fund.
- Depending on your individual circumstances: an installation grant, family, child and infant allowances as well as travel expenses to and from Geneva.
- 2.5 days of paid leave per month.
