About University of Michigan
The Research Semester at CERN program is a pilot Research/Study Abroad program at CERN (the European Laboratory for Particle Physics) funded by the Lounsbery Foundation. This program is intended to provide talented physics undergraduate students with the opportunity to spend a semester at CERN, home of the world's largest particle accelerator. Students in the program will be assigned a mutually agreed upon project chosen from a wide range of high energy research topics, such as assisting with Higgs boson analysis, supersymmetry searches, trigger studies, detector development and upgrade, and many other physics and engineering projects. They will become part of an active CERN research group engaged in real ongoing analyses. Applications are currently being accepted for Winter term 2018 and Fall term 2018.
