4 I. OVERVIEW Who works at CERN ? STAFF ~ 2300 Fellows ~ 500 Students
Recruited from our Member States, paid by CERN with limited duration or indefinite contracts. Fellows ~ 500 recent graduates in physics and engineering, normally staying two years. Students ~ 600 Come for a practical training assignment, write their Diploma or PhD thesis at CERN. Associates ~ 220 Scientific and Corresponding Associates: senior scientists coming on leave of absence. Project Associates: Physicists, engineers and technicians sent by their home institutes for periods of up to 3 years. USERs ~ Sent by their universities to „use“ the CERN facilities > 80 Nationalities und > 600 Univ. and Institutes. Who works at CERN ?

5 II. STAFF Employment JOBS at CERN
Opportunities for Engineers, Technicians, Administrative personnel ~200 positions/year EMPLOYED MEMBERS OF PERSONNEL RECRUITED FROM OUR 20 MEMBER STATES Eligibility : > from apprenticeship to PhD Selection : > vacancies published on the WEB Features : - Maximum 5 year contract - competitive salaries incl. social benefits - training possibilities (language courses, technical training) - help with integration: housing service, social service The scientific and technical STAFF design and build the laboratory’s technological infrastructure and ensure its operation. They also help to prepare, run and analyze the scientific experiments.
