Within the framework of the CERN-Asia Fellows and Associates Programme, CERN offers three grants every year to East, Southeast and South Asia* postgraduates under the age of 33, enabling them to participate in its scientific programme in the areas of experimental and theoretical physics and accelerator technologies. The appointment will be for one year, which might, exceptionally, be extended to two years.
Applications will be considered by the CERN Associates and Fellows Committee at its meeting on 18 November 2003. An application must consist of a completed application form, on which “CERN-Asia Programme” should be written; three separate reference letters; and a curriculum vitae including a list of scientific publications and any other information regarding the quality of the candidate. Applications, references and any other information must be provided in English only.

These are open either to scientists who are nationals of the East, Southeast and South Asian* countries who wish to spend a fraction of the year at CERN, or to researchers at CERN who are nationals of a CERN Member State and wish to spend a fraction of the year at a Japanese laboratory.
