At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Using the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter - fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Find out more on http://home.cern.
Diversity has been an integral part of CERN's mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization.
Are you a technician looking for a challenging professional experience to further your career? If so, joining CERN’s Technician programme may very well give you that challenge. This position as an Health, Safety and Environmental protection technician is part of our prestigious TTE programme.
CERN’s Occupational Health and Safety & Environmental Protection unit (HSE) is the body that drives CERN’s security policy. As an expertise center specializing in security issues, the HSE unit provides effective support in this area at all levels of the Organization.
Within the unit’s Occupational Health and Safety group (HSE-OHS), you will join the Infrastructure & Building Safety Engineering section as a safety inspector. You will have the opportunity to work with a variety of experts such as occupational health and safety specialists, environmental specialists, technical inspectors and safety representatives from different departments.
As an Health, Safety and Environmental protection Technician, your missions will be the following:
Skills required for the job:
The project manager is looking for a candidate available for a possible contract start date in autumn 2020.
In order to qualify for a place on the programme you will need to meet the following requirements:
You should have at least a working knowledge of English or French.
CERN would very much like to benefit from your expertise, commitment and passion. In return, CERN will provide you with:
As a member of a team with experienced technicians and safety specialists from many European countries, you will find a dynamic environment, where you will acquire or develop your skills.
Thanks to this experience you will deepen your knowledge of French, Swiss and European regulations on occupational health and work safety.
With the help of specialists (in chemistry, fire, environment, structure, ergonomics, etc.) you will develop your knowledge on the management of different risks.
Fieldwork with the safety representatives of the different departments will allow you to improve your observation, communication and argumentation skills.
Your future Life @CERN
This is how you can apply:
You will need the following documents, clearly labelled (e.g. “CV”, “Motivation letter”, “Academic transcript”, etc.) and in PDF format to complete your application:
All applications should normally reach us no later than 29.09.2020.
It's really important to fill with particular attention the motivation part and education/experience part.
At an intergovernmental meeting of UNESCO in Paris in December 1951, the first resolution concerning the establishment of a European Council for Nuclear Research (in French Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire) was adopted.Two months later, an agreement was signed establishing the provisional Council – the acronym CERN was born.Today, our understanding of matter goes much deeper than the nucleus, and CERN's main area of research is particle physics. Because of this, the laboratory operated by CERN is often referred to as the European Laboratory for Particle Physics.
Physicists and engineers at CERN use the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – fundamental particles. Subatomic particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives us clues about how the particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. We want to advance the boundaries of human knowledge by delving into the smallest building blocks of our universe.
The instruments used at CERN are purpose-built particle accelerators and detectors. Accelerators boost beams of particles to high energies before the beams are made to collide with each other or with stationary targets. Detectors observe and record the results of these collisions.Founded in 1954, the CERN laboratory sits astride the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva. It was one of Europe's first joint ventures and now has 23 member states.
