Post Career Break Fellowship
Datum: 4 mars, 2024 Tid: 12:00
Have you taken time out for personal reasons from your career in science or engineering? Would you be interested in returning to a scientific career if you could?
CERN has launched a programme to offer full-time or part-time fellowships to science and engineering graduates looking for a way back into science. This is an outstanding chance for you to update your knowledge and skills working for up to three years in an international environment at the forefront of research.
Please note that you are applying for a programme and not for a specific job. In order to help us offer you an interesting work project, for those of you in fields other than particle physics we recommend that you let us know how your research interests and skills relate to CERN’s diverse activities. You can include this during the online application process form or in a separate motivation letter.
In order to qualify for a place on the programme you will need to meet the following requirements:
- You have been on a career break for personal reasons (for example for family or caring responsibilities, health issues) for at least two years. Please note that periods of unemployment or a change in field from your studies or in the direction of your career are not considered a “career break” within the spirit of our programme.
- You have a Experienced Graduate profile, for nationals of Member or Associate Member States with a MSc degree and between 2 and 6 years’ experience or PhD with up to three years of relevant experience. If you are applying in the fields of experimental or theoretical physics, you must have a "Research Fellowship" profile, holding a PhD and up to six years’ experience in the field after obtaining their PhD.
