CERN openlab Summer Student Programme

https://jobs.web.cern.ch/join-us/cern-openlab-summer-students-2018-member-states-and-non-ms

Are you a B.Sc. or M.Sc. student (who will have completed at least three years of full-time studies at university level by next spring) in Computer Science or Mathematics, Engineering or Physics with a strong computing profile? Would you be interested in working on an advanced IT project for two full months during the summer? If so, you should apply to the CERN openlab Summer Student Programme!

During two full months corresponding to nine weeks (June-August 2018), the CERN openlab summer students will be given a series of IT lectures  especially prepared for them by experts at CERN and other institutes. The students also have the opportunity to attend the CERN generic student programme lectures, if they wish. Visits to the accelerators and experimental areas are part of the programme, as well as visits to external companies. A report on the work project carried out is to be handed in at the end of the stay. For more information on the CERN openlab Summer Student Programme, please visit the homepage.
