Post Career Break Fellowship
Have you taken time out for personal reasons from your career in science or engineering? Would you be interested in returning to work if you could?
CERN has launched a programme to offer full-time or part-time Fellowships to science and engineering graduates wishing to re-start their careers. This is an outstanding chance for you to update your knowledge and skills working for up to three years in an international environment at the forefront of research.
CERN is proud to be involved in COFUND a European Commission Marie Sklodowksa-Curie Action to stimulate mobility and career development through fellowship programmes. Through the COFUND programme, we will be offering a limited number of 3-year Fellowships to top-ranked Senior Fellows. Candidates meeting these requirements will be considered for a COFUND Fellowship. One feature of the COFUND programme is the possibility to spend up to 12 months of the Fellow contract at another institute, provided that the work still corresponds to your original project at CERN.
Deadline to submit applications: 28 FEB 2017 ; 23:59 CET/ Deadline to submit all required documents: 2 March 2017; 23:59 CET

CERN already runs a very successful Fellowship Programme which awards approximately 220 Fellowships per year in both for research work (experimental or theoretical physics) and advanced development work and related research in a broad range of applied science, computing and engineering fields.
This programme will offer one full-time or two part-time Fellowships and is aimed at candidates with either a Junior or a Senior Fellow profile depending on the qualifications and experience of the individual.
Fellowships are normally granted for two years. Extensions for part or all of a third year are granted only in exceptional circumstances.
Please note that an individual may only benefit from Fellow status at CERN for a maximum of 36 months. The minimum duration of a Fellow contract is 6 months.
Candidates who are registered as CERN Users may be asked to justify how their status relates to their application.
The application and ALL supporting documents should reach CERN (or be submitted using the e-recruitment system) by the closing date.
(*) Please note: In the "Specific Information" of the application form a link to forward to your referees will be available (as well as in the email of acknowledgment receipt). This link will allow them to submit their letters of recommendation in support of your application. Letters should be in English or French and submitted by the deadline indicated. Applications which are incomplete (e.g. missing reference letters) as of the closing date for a given meeting will not be considered. Letters already in your possession may also be uploaded directly to your application in the Documents menu.
All applications for Fellowships are considered by the Associates and Fellows Committee which meets twice per year, usually in May and November. Successful applicants are normally expected to take up their appointments within 3 months of date specified by the candidate on their application form.
