Zoniah Ahmad recently made waves by becoming the first Pakistani female student to secure a prestigious opportunity at CERN. The Masters’s student has been selected for international training at the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Switzerland, where she will be working in the world’s largest particle physics laboratory.
“I am working here in Technology Department of MSC (Magnets, Superconductors and Cryostats) where I help in designing, constructing and measuring superconducting magnets for the CERN accelerator complex with my team. Here we develop associated technologies, namely superconductors, insulation and polymers, superconducting electrical devices and magnetic measurements for present and future accelerators,” she explained.
She also enthused about being part of CERN and how she wishes to represent Pakistan in a positive light through her work at such a prestigious institution.
“I am proud of Pakistan being an associate member of CERN and it’s big contribution. I am glad that I am representing my country and it’s positive image around the globe,” she said.
European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, is a European research organization that operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world. Established in 1954, the organization is based in a northwest suburb of Geneva on the Franco–Swiss border and has 23 member states.
CERN is proud to announce the short-term internship program for 2020. This is a fully funded CERN Short Term Internships in Switzerland. All cost of the participant will be covered. The total number of Internships is 1,560. So, must apply as chances of selection are more.
