CERN Summer Student Programme 2023, organised by the Geneva-based European Organization for Nuclear Research, is the training programme paid for up to 3 months for university students that are enrolled in Physics, Mathematics, Informatics and Engineering.
During this period, students will have the opportunity to work on an advanced technical project as part of an experimental team, in engineering or informatics fields.
It is also possible to attend a series of seminaries and online lessons by scientists and experts from all over the world. Founded in 1954, CERN mainly studies the fundamental constituents of matter and the forces acting between them. It was a site of important scientific discoveries such as the Higgs boson, a particle whose existence had been theorized by the British physicist Peter Ware Higgs in 1964, that was observed for the first time during experiments conducted at CERN in 2012. Nowadays, the European Organization for Nuclear Research has 23 member countries. CERN also involves other States in its surveys and activities, both European and non-European, in order to encourage the
international scientific cooperation and the development of the next generations of scientists.
To participate in the CERN Summer Student Programme you have to meet the following criteria:
being a student of a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree (non-doctorate) in Physics, Engineering, Informatics or Mathematics, who will complete at least 3 years of studies by the summer 2023. Participation is also open to those who will graduate within the summer period (from May);
have never worked at CERN for more than 3 months and have never participated in the Organisation’s summer programmes;
good knowledge of English. Any knowledge of French is considered a plus.
