The European Organization for Nuclear Research, CERN, (based in Geneva, Switzerland), and the Fondazione Giovanni Agnelli, FGA, (based in Torino, Italy) are collaborating on a project aimed at fostering scientific culture, especially in the field of physics, in Italian middle schools (grades 6-8).

They are looking for a liaison figure who will work in close contact with CERN and FGA in the initial stage of the project. S/he must commit to a 2-3 months residency period at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, plus another period of part-time collaboration from home.

The project will have its pilot phase during the school year 2020-21. By the end of that school year, the candidate will have led the development process of the all-in-one lab kits and the professional development for middle school teachers in Italy. Besides, s/he will have assisted CERN, FGA, and its associates in testing the equipment in some selected pilot schools.

During the stay at CERN, the successful candidate will receive an allowance according to CERN standards, to cover all cost in Geneva.

Candidates will be initially selected on the basis their CVs and videos and subsequently be interviewed individually.

Candidates should send the required material not later than 28 January 2020.
