The CERN openlab Summer Student programme 2020
Are you currently studying for a Bachelor or Master degree and have a strong IT profile? Are you looking for a practical training period during the European summer (June – August)? If so, this could be the opportunity for you: apply now for the CERN openlab Summer Student Programme!
At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Using the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter - fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Find out more on home.cern
Diversity has been an integral part of CERN's mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization.
One of CERN’s and CERN openlab’s key missions is education. Our professionals very much enjoy sharing their knowledge and expertise with students who are committed and passionate about their chosen field. And there is no better way to learn than on-the-job: when that job happens to be in a world-famous research organisation and centre of scientific excellence, it’s even better.
During two full months corresponding to 9 weeks (June - August 2020), CERN openlab summer students will work on an advanced IT project and will be given a series of IT lectures specially prepared for them by experts at CERN and other institutes. The students also have the opportunity to attend the main CERN Summer student programme lectures, if they wish. Visits to the accelerators and experimental areas are part of the programme, as well as visits to external companies. A short report and a presentation on your work and project at CERN will be expected at the end of your stay. Find out more about the CERN openlab Summer Student Programme on its webpage.
Monday 15 June, 22 June and 29 June 2020.
