Fully Funded CERN Junior Fellowships Programme is aimed at graduates from universities or higher technical institutes in a wide range of applied sciences, computing, and engineering with limited or no work experience, looking to work in a research group.
Please note that you are applying for a program and not a specific job. In order to help CERN to offer you an interesting work project, it is recommended that you let CERN know how your research interests and skills relate to CERN’s diverse activities. You can include this during the online application process form or in a separate motivation letter.
