    It looks like an amazing, interesting and basically weird place to work, is there anything i can do/route to go down to increase my chances as a Chemical engineering masters grad?

    Unlikely - mechanical and electrical/electronic/control would be the dominant disciplines I'd imagine.

    Mostly engineers and physicists. It wouldn't hurt to ask, but I don't think they really deal in chemical sciences exactly - Most of the experiments are about particle collisions. Sure, this has a chemistry, but they're more focused on the physical properties. There may be the odd job in this field, but it's really not their major focus.

    I can't remember the exact value, but I think they have something lik 5-20 times as many engineers as physicists. It's a huge engineering project! There are other smaller projects at CERN, so there is the chance that one of them may need someone good in chemistry.


    They run summer and full year placements, so you could have a look and see which subject areas they're taking students in from. Failing that, email the careers team and ask them your question.
