The Fellowship Programme awards approximately 150 Fellowships per year. Around half are for research work (experimental or theoretical physics) under a Senior Fellowship and half are for advanced development work and related research in a broad range of applied science, computing and engineering either under a Junior or a Senior Fellowship depending on the qualifications and experience of the individual. Fellowships are intended for recent graduates from university or higher technical institutes, or university postgraduates who want to work in a research group. Research fellows in experimental or theoretical physics normally have terminated their studies for a doctorate (PhD or equivalent) while Fellowships in applied science, computing and engineering are open to recent graduates at Bachelor level and above. Fellowships are granted for one year initially and are normally extended for a second year, while extensions for part or all of a third year are granted only in exceptional circumstances
•You are a national of a CERN Member State. However, a limited number of positions for Senior Fellows are also available to scientists and engineers from Non-Member States. Non-Member State candidates seeking a postdoc in Theoretical Physics should apply here.
