CERN Junior Fellowship Program 2021 in Switzerland:
Online applications are opened for the 2021 CERN Junior Fellowship program in Switzerland. This program is made available to Undergraduate & Graduates to improve upon their career journey. The aim of the CERN Fellowship Program is to gather 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.
CERN is a European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and Engineers. 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. Diversity has been an integral part of CERN’s mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization. So, students with Diverse Fields from different academic backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
