CERN Openlab

CERNAre you a student in Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering or Physics, interested in working on advanced IT projects for two full months during the summer? If so, you should apply to the CERN Openlab Summer Student Program!

CERN Openlab is a collaboration between CERN and industrial partners to develop new knowledge in Information and Communication Technologies through the evaluation of advanced solutions and joint research to be used by the worldwide community of scientists working at the Large Hadron Collider. Industrial partners include HP, Intel Corporation, Oracle Corporation and Siemens.

During two full months corresponding to nine weeks (June-September 2017), the CERN Openlab summer students will be given a series of IT lectures especially prepared for them by experts at CERN. The students also have the opportunity to attend the CERN generic student program lectures. Visits to the accelerators and experimental areas are part of the program, as well as external visits. A report on the work project carried out is to be handed in at the end of the stay.

Who can apply: Bachelor or master students having completed (by the summer of attending) at least three years of full-time studies at university level in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics or Physics, interested in working on advanced IT projects for two full months (nine weeks) during the period June-September 2017 are welcome to apply. Please note that the applicants must remain registered as a student during summer 2017 and that students graduating during summer 2017 are also eligible to apply. Students having already worked at CERN before (as a user or a Technical Student) are not eligible to apply. A good knowledge of English is mandatory; knowledge of French would be an advantage.

Location: CERN, Geneva.

Duration: 2 months.

Stipend: 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 last date to apply is February 15, 2017.
