A way back in: the CERN Post-Career Break Fellowship

12 June 2017  
Share |

Since 2014, CERN offers a professional opportunity for keen scientific or engineering talent with a common experience: a temporary absence from the field.

The way we see it:  

You were taking off.

You were in the early days of a profession in science or engineering.

Or perhaps you were already steeped in and building up expertise.

You were in and you were making it, contributing to your field with passion.  But then…


…You had to take some time

Perhaps you started a family, perhaps someone in your family needed looking after.

Either way, a personal situation called upon you with its responsibilities, and for the time being, you had to step aside. But now…


...You're ready to take the leap again.

Your situation has evolved, we hope for the best. You’re considering returning, more likely you never quite stopped thinking about it.

But the way back is a steep climb and we at CERN know that.

That’s why we’ve developed an opportunity to help you on your way



„This fellowship changed my life!“

„CERN gives you the opportunity
of a second chance“


„The Fellowship was a great opportunity
for me to establish myself again in the research environment.“
