CERN Senior Applied Research Fellowship Program 2022

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, calls for applications to its Senior Applied Fellowship Programme 2022.

The CERN Programme is aimed at graduates from universities or higher technical institutes in a wide range of applied sciences, computing, and engineering with 4 to 10 years of experience. Senior Fellowships are intended for MSc or Ph.D. graduates looking to work in a research group.

At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the universe’s fundamental structure. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature.


CERN will provide candidates with:

  • An employment contract for between six months (minimum) up to a maximum of 36 months.
  • A stipend ranging from 7,201 to 8,178 Swiss Francs per month (net of tax).
  • Coverage by CERN’s comprehensive health scheme (for candidate, his/her spouse and children), and membership of the CERN Pension Fund.
  • Depending on individual circumstances: an installation grant, family, child and infant allowances as well as travel expenses to and from Geneva.


To qualify for a place on the CERN senior fellowship program the following requirements must be met:

  • Be a national of a CERN Member or Associate Member State
  • Have a PhD, or at least 4 years’ relevant experience since the completion of the MSc (or the equivalent diploma which gives access to doctoral programmes)
