Exploring CERN: Where Science Meets Excellence

At CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research), brilliant minds in physics and engineering are unraveling the universe’s fundamental mysteries. Using cutting-edge scientific instruments, they delve into the essence of matter—fundamental particles colliding at nearly the speed of light. This process not only reveals the secrets of particle interactions but also sheds light on the fundamental laws of nature. Learn more at

Diversity is deeply embedded in CERN’s mission and core values.

A Glimpse into Your Future

Imagine being part of work that’s reshaping the world, all before leaving university. Picture yourself in an international environment, enjoying an excellent quality of life. You can make this a reality by participating in CERN’s Administrative Student Programme!

There’s no better way to learn than through hands-on experience. And when that experience comes from a world-renowned organization and a hub of scientific excellence, it’s even more exceptional. If you’re an undergraduate in Administration seeking practical training or a place to complete your final project, consider spending 2 to 12 months at CERN during your studies (Bachelor or Master’s). If your university encourages internships, imagine gaining this experience at CERN in Geneva.

Your internship could span diverse disciplines, including 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, and more.

A panel of CERN experts reviews applications three times a year, in February, June, and October. Typically, around 50 students are selected annually to join the programme.

Qualifications for the Journey

To be eligible for this enriching opportunity, you should meet the following criteria:

  • Be a national of a CERN Member or Associate Member State.
  • Have completed at least 18 months of your undergraduate studies (Bachelor or Master’s) in an administrative field by the February 2024 student committee.
  • Remain registered as a full-time student during the internship.
  • Possess a good command of English or French.

Please note that if you are studying in a STEM/engineering field, this position is not eligible for you. Instead, consider applying for the CERN Technical Student programme.

Rewards of Your CERN Experience

In exchange for your expertise, dedication, and passion, CERN offers you:

  • A contract of association ranging from 2 to 12 months.
  • A monthly allowance of 3407 Swiss Francs (net of tax).
  • A travel allowance.
  • A supplement for those who are married and/or have children, based on personal circumstances.
  • Coverage by CERN’s comprehensive Health Insurance scheme, with contributions automatically deducted from your allowance.
  • 2.5 days of paid leave per month.

Application Deadline: November 6, 2023 (12:00 CET)

Kindly note that your application may be shared with national experts for evaluation purposes during the recruitment process. It will ultimately be reviewed by a panel of CERN experts between November 6, 2023, and the end of January 2024. During this period, you may be contacted for a phone/video interview or additional information. The outcome of the recruitment process will be communicated no later than mid-February 2024.

Please be aware that if your institute (university) requires a traineeship agreement, CERN will not sign external documents due to its status as an international organization. Instead, you will be provided with the CERN traineeship agreement upon request.
