We like building things and breaking things. We like talking about the universe and particles, but we also like a bunch of other things.

From mechanics, data science, software engineering, international relations, firefighting to our plans for a weekend in the mountains and lakes.

We like people like us, and we love people that are not like us.

Experienced or not, let’s meet and make CERN a place like nowhere else on Earth.
