Portuguese Training Programme

Monday, November 21, 2016 - 12:30

The Trainee Programme has been established through bilateral agreements between CERN and several Member States. The program allows the national agencies to use CERN's forefront technological facilities for the training of their postgraduates. To date, a bilateral agreement has been established with the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT) in Portugal.

The Trainee Program is aimed at recently graduated scientists, engineers and technicians seeking further training in a wide area of technological projects. Selected trainees will join a team working at CERN and have the opportunity to enlarge their knowledge through participation in the hi-tech activities of the laboratory, in fields such as computer science, electrical, electronic and mechanical engineering, cryogenics, ultra-high vacuum, radiation protection, instrumentation for accelerators and particle physics experiments, development of conventional, super-conducting magnets, surveying, large scale metrology and positioning systems. Trainees normally spend between 12 to 24 months at the laboratory. 

Two of the projects of this year have been proposed by SFT (all the information on the FCT website (link is external), list of accepted projects (link is external))

A big opportunity for young Portuguese scientists and engineers!
