CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, invites applications from students globally for the CERN Administrative Student Programme, in Genrva, Switzerland. If you’re an Undergraduate or Graduate student in Administrative disciplines and you are looking for a practical training period or a place to complete your final project, then this is a perfect programme for you. Apply Now!
CERN Administrative Student Programme is a better way to learn on-the-job, especially when that job happens to be in a world-famous organisation and centre of scientific excellence, even better. If you’re an undergraduate in Administration and are looking for a practical training period or a place to complete your final project, you could spend 2 to 12 months at CERN during the course of your studies (Bachelor or Master). If your university requires or encourages you to acquire work experience through an internship, imagine doing this at CERN in Geneva.
CERN’s Administrative Student applicants could be in any of the following disciplines: translation, human resources, advanced secretarial work, business administration, logistics, law, finance, accounting, library and information science, engineering management, science communication, education, audiovisual, communication and public relations, psychology, audit; but are a few examples of the many domains in which successful applicants will learn and contribute their knowledge.
A panel of CERN experts meets three times a year in February, June and October, to review all applications, and typically around 50 students are selected to join the programme annually.
