To encourage master students to pursue their career in physics, MaNEP offers them in their 3rd or 4th year of studies in physics the unique opportunity to spend one month in one of MaNEP’s top level research groups, between July and September. Since 2004, these internships have successfully encouraged several of the participants to envisage a more ambitious career in physics.

A financial support is allocated for the duration of the internship.

For this edition, a full stipend will be granted to students who move to another institution for their internship than the one where they study, and  50% will be allocated to students who make the internship in their home institution.

To register, the hosting group leader just needs to send an email to with the following information about the student: full name, a short CV, address in Switzerland, project title and the one month period of the internship and bank account.


The candidate must have an accident insurance (provided by the hosting institution) during the internship period. The student will be paid after MaNEP have received a signed timesheet attesting the student’s work.

This year, the Network is pleased to offer selected internships available at CERN in material science and applied superconductivity. Candidates are required to apply online through the CERN portal. In parallel, they must also send their application directly to Luca Bottura, MaNEP member and group leader at CERN, by June 8, 2020.
