Nuclear Research - CERN Fellowship and GET Programmes 2014
CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is asking for applications for its Fellowship and GET (Graduate Engineer Training) Programmes. The closing date to submit an application is September 1, 2014. Approximately 150 Fellowships are awarded per year. Fellowships are normally granted for two years initially, while extensions for part or all of a third year are granted only in exceptional circumstances. Stipends are calculated individually.
Around half of the fellowships are for research work (experimental or theoretical physics) under a Senior Fellowship and half are for advanced development work and related research in a broad range of applied science, computing and engineering either under a Junior or a Senior Fellowship depending on the qualifications and experience of the individual. Fellowships are intended for recent graduates from university or higher technical institutes, or university postgraduates who want to work in a research group.
CERN is one of the world’s largest and most respected centres for scientific research. Its business is fundamental physics, finding out what the Universe is made of and how it works.
