Dear eq-uni,

Interesting CERN fellowship announcement for your information:

CERN  Graduate Fellowship position / Diversity studies at CERN

In keeping with its international and increasingly global character,  
the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) has recently  
appointed a Diversity Officer to develop and implement a policy that  
will promote awareness and adherence to diversity,   one of the  
established values of the Organisation.

In support of this new initiative, a position is now open to  
postgraduates in the framework of the CERN Fellowship Programme.

  Working closely with the new Diversity Officer, you will experience  
how a new policy is rolled out in a major international organization  
and you will have the opportunity to make a significant contribution,  
principally through researching and bench-marking best practice  
related to the promotion of workforce diversity.

  Your responsibilities will include research in support of the  
development of this new policy and the collection and evaluation of  
data and practice from other international organizations, academic  
institutions and large companies.
Candidates should have some experience of data collection, evaluation  
and reporting, preferably in the field of social sciences, management  
or human resources.

Fellowships are granted for one year initially and are normally  
extended for a second year. Extensions for part or all of a third year  
are granted only in exceptional circumstances.

All applications for Fellowships are considered by the Fellows and  
Associates Committee (AFC) which meets twice per year, usually in May  
and November.

Although this application procedure is (normally) foreseen for the  
Fellowship selection committee in November, applications for the  
Diversity position will be transferred manually to the committee in  
May for consideration.
The successful applicant will be offered an appointment which will  
begin as soon as possible after the committee decision is communicated.

Details about the CERN Fellowship programme can be found at  
Candidates for this position should submit their applications by  
Friday, 6th May at the latest via the above link.
