Applications are invited for one of the best Short Term Internship Program at CERN in Switzerland. This is a paid short term internship program in Geneva.

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.

They offer a limited number of places in our practical training programme from between 1 to 6 months geared towards your particular field of study.
