Opportunities for CSU Students to Work at CERN with NSF IRES Grant


The ATLAS (A Toroidal LHC ApparatuS) experiment of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland discovered the Higgs boson (“God” particle) in 2012. ATLAS will remain a leading player in the post-Higgs era until at least 2030, possibly much longer. I will talk about opportunities for CSU students to work at CERN during upcoming summers with the CSU ATLAS group and support from a NSF International Research Experience for Students (IRES) grant. Over 90 students from 11 CSU campuses have worked at CERN on ATLAS research since 2008. ATLAS/CERN working experience prepares CSU students for their personal and professional success in an increasingly competitive, global, and multi-cultural society.
