Post Career Break Fellowship Programme
|Workplace||Geneva, Lake Geneva region, Switzerland|
At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Using the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter - fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature.

Diversity has been an integral part of CERN's mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization.
Welcome to the Post Career Break Fellowship Programme
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?
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 either a "Senior Fellow" profile, with a MSc level diploma or PhD and between 4 and 10 years’ relevant experience after completion of your MSc. If you are applying in the fields of experimental or theoretical physics, you must hold a PhD (or be about to finish your thesis).
Please note that candidates who are registered as CERN Users may be asked to justify how their status relates to their application.
CERN would very much like to benefit from your expertise, commitment and passion. In return, CERN will provide you with:
An employment contract for between 6 months (minimum) up to a maximum of 36 months.
Coverage by CERN’s comprehensive health scheme (for yourself, your spouse and children), and membership of the CERN Pension Fund.
Depending on your individual circumstances: an installation grant, family, child and infant allowances as well as travel expenses to and from Geneva.
