QUASAR Milena Vujanovic has teamed up with Lauren Yeomans, both PhD candidates at the University of Liverpool, to organise a free online webinar about Student Opportunities at CERN. This Webinar which will take place on Wednesday 25 November 2020 is aimed at students at different levels in their study from undergraduates to Master and PhD students.

Milena is very familiar with student opportunities at CERN as she has held several positions at CERN. She has spent time there as a summer student, technical student, short-term intern and corporate associate. Milena also has a blog to inform and help students with their applications at CERN. So far she has supported over 500 students in this process. Her research project targets novel diagnostics that will benefit the antimatter decelerator facility at CERN. Lauren joined CERN through the University of Liverpool during her PhD and her research involved the LHCb experiment at CERN.

During this webinar Milena and Lauren will talk about positions at CERN that are available to students. Examples of these opportunities are the Doctoral Student Programme, the Technical Student Programme and Short-Term Internships to name a few. During this webinar not only details on the various programmes will be presented, areas such as the conditions and eligibility in order to participate in these programmes will also be covered. This will be combined with useful information about the application process and on how to prepare a good motivation letter and Curriculum Vitae.

With institutions and universities from many countries active at CERN there are a range of options for student get involved. This webinar will also provide information about different routes students can take to work at CERN. The talks will be followed by a Q&A session where Milena and Lauren will answer questions submitted by the participants. Students who would like to join this informative webinar can register here.
