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 normally granted for two years initially, 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 are also available to candidates from Non-Member States with a Senior profile. If you are applying in experimental or theoretical physics, you have a PhD (or are about to finish your thesis). If you are applying in applied science, computing or engineering, you hold a university degree (BSc level or above) or a technical engineer qualification (or are about to graduate). Candidates with an MSc or higher diploma should have no more than 10 years relevant experience (after the MSc).
