What could be a better boost for your career than a 1-2 year at CERN, an Organization at the cutting edge of technology?
You could be working in fields as wide-ranging such as: superconducting magnets; power; cryogenics; vacuum technologies and electronics for detectors; including radiation resistance issues; and other activities related to infrastructures which could potentially have returns in industry.
