Come to work at CERN

At CERN, the world’s largest and most complex scientific instruments are used to study the basic constituents of matter — the fundamental particles. By studying what happens when these particles collide, physicists learn about the laws of Nature.

Beauty quarks test lepton universality

A series of measurements from LHCb and B-factory experiments have tested whether the interactions of charged leptons agree with the Standard Model.

High-gradient X-band technology: from TeV colliders to light sources and more

Technologies developed for the Compact Linear Collider promise smaller accelerators for applications outside high-energy physics.

Time to adapt for big data

Radical changes in computing and software are required to ensure the success of the LHC and other high-energy physics experiments into the 2020s, argues a new report.
