Applications are invited for Fully Funded Technical Student Programme in Applied Physics at CERN, Switzerland. This Technical Studentship Programme will be held at CERN. 

If your university or institute requires or encourages you to acquire work experience through an internship, imagine doing this at CERN in Geneva. It’s more than work experience. In fact, it’s a student programme like nowhere else on Earth and an impressive addition to your CV!

If you are a student looking to complete practical training in domains related to Applied Physics, you will have the opportunity to work at the cutting edge of technology, contribute and broaden your knowledge in disciplines as varied as particle detector physics and their applications, analysis and simulation, data processing, radiation studies, beam instrumentation, optics, lasers, cryogenics, vacuum or thermodynamics to name but a few.
