The CERN openlab summer-student programme

Country: Switzerland;

Deadline: 31.01.2020



Are you a B.Sc. or M.Sc. student (who will have completed at least three years of full-time studies at university level by next spring) in computer science, mathematics, engineering, or physics — with a strong computing profile? Would you be interested in working on an advanced ICT project for nine weeks during the period
June-September 2020? If so, you should apply to the CERN openlab summer-student programme!

The application must be submitted here by 31 January 2020. The following documents should be included in the application: your CV, recommendation letter(s) by university supervisor(s), a motivation letter with an indication of the preferred area of work, and academic transcripts for the current year. Please note that incomplete applications will not be considered. Replies to applicants will be sent out in April/May 2020.

A stipend of 90 CHF per day during contractual dates (generally 61 days) is sponsored by CERN and the CERN openlab industrial members and should cover accommodation and living costs during the nine-week stay. Students are covered by the CERN health and accident insurance scheme, and are offered a travel allowance on a lump-sum basis.

The students participating in the programme work on projects related to specific topics, each with a dedicated CERN supervisor. At the end of their stay at CERN, the students produce a report and present their work in a short presentation in the CERN IT department.
