The openlab student programme is open for applications from bachelor, master and PhD students in computer science and physics.

Successful applicants will spend two months at CERN, during the period June to September 2010, to work with some of the latest hardware and software technologies.

The programme is more than just a summer at CERN: it can lead to follow-on projects at the home institute and may even inspire entrepreneurs in cutting-edge computing technologies.

A series of lectures by experts in various domains of CERN related to high-throughput computing, and study tours to universities and CERN facilities are also part of the programme.

All nationalities are welcome to apply, as long as the home institute supports the application. Note that partial funding is available and normally the home institute is expected to co-fund the stay at CERN.

Please visit for more information. Candidates should send a CV and letter of support from a supervisor to The closing date is 31 March 2010. Please pass this information on to students, institutes and contacts that you may have in this area.
