What could be a better boost for your career than a 2 year contract in the largest scientific experiment in the world – an Organization at the cutting edge of technology and one which needs your technical expertise?

Imagine having one of your first work experiences at CERN, an environment that will have a major impact on your career!

We welcome applications from talented recent graduates who will have the opportunity to work in a diversity of fields such as:   computer science, electrical, electronic and mechanical engineering, cryogenics, ultra-high vacuum, radiation protection, instrumentation for accelerators and particle physics experiments, development of conventional, super-conducting magnets, surveying, large scale metrology and positioning systems

These are but a few examples of the many domains in which successful applicants will learn and contribute their knowledge.

Apply for one of the specific projects that you’d love to work on, and/or to the generic VIA post which gives us your green light to match you with any project (current or upcoming) that corresponds to your profile.
