INTERNSHIPS

InternshipsEducation is one of the fundamental missions of CERN. As a center of technical and scientific excellency, the Laboratory offers various programmes and internship solutions in various domains such as physics, civil engineering, electronics, mechanics, electromechanics, computing, material engineering, electricity, administration etc.

CERN offers 5 internship programmes particularly tailored for young Belgian students.

These programmes offer a subsistence allowance and cover travel costs.
French and English are CERN's official languages, which is an advantage for Belgian students, who usually master one or both of these languages.

You therefore have no reason not to apply!
