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 instruments used at CERN are purpose-built particle accelerators and detectors. Accelerators boost beams of particles to high energies before the beams are made to collide with each other or with stationary targets.

Detectors observe and record the results of these collisions. And in order to do so we need more than just physicists! We are looking for talent from a wide variety of disciplines such as electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, software engineering, data science, administration and more. Whether you are still studying, looking for an opportunity to write your doctoral thesis in an international organization or seek for a great opportunity to start your career after graduation. CERN could be your next opportunity. Take part! Our opportunities for students and graduates are open for applications 2-4 times per year. More info on
