Studentships in Summer 2015
Geneva, Switzerland

Scholarship / Financial aid: a limited number of studentships are available

Date: summer 2015

Deadline: 28 January 2015

Open to: students of physics, computing and engineering from Romania and Serbia

Announcement follows

Nationals of Romania and Serbia: please apply for the Member State programme

The CERN Summer Student Program offers undergraduate and junior post-graduate students of physics, computing and engineering a unique opportunity to join in the day-to-day work of research teams participating in experiments at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. Beyond the outstanding first-class scientific value of their stay, the selected students will find working in a multidisciplinary and multicultural environment an extremely enriching personal experience. It is an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make valuable and long lasting contacts with other students and scientists from all over the World.

In addition to the work in the experimental teams, Summer Students attend a series of lectures specially prepared for them. Several scientists and engineers from around the world share their knowledge about a wide range of topics in the fields of theoretical and experimental particle physics, engineering and computing. Visits to the accelerators and experimental areas are also part of the Program, as well as discussion sessions, workshops and a poster session. Attendance requires a presence of 8 weeks on site and the possible dates of stay are the following:

8 June to 31 July
15 June to 07 August
22 June to 14 August
29 June to 21 August - in exceptional circumstances only

The deadline for this application is fixed on 28 January 2015 (00:00 CET !)

A limited number of studentships are available during the European summer period only. CERN financial support may also be offered to students who are nationals of countries that are not Member States of CERN.

In addition to the work in the experimental and engineering teams, the selected students are required to attend a series of lectures. Scientists from around the world share their knowledge about a wide range of topics in the fields of theoretical and experimental particle physics, engineering and computing. Students are also required to complete a report at the end of their studentship.
