• Computing in the Laboratory: Where Natural Science and Computer Science meet

    Where is the Nobel Prize for Computer Science?

    Computing plays an important role in all the natural sciences. Although there is no Nobel Prize for Computer Science, many scientific discoveries in Physics, Chemistry and Biology rely heavily on various kinds of computation and extensive collaboration with computer scientists and software engineers. See Computer modellers secure chemistry Nobels in 2013, for example.

    Consequently, there are many European research laboratories who hire computer scientists. CERN in Geneva is probably the best known, but there are many others like it, and some of them offer year long placements and summer internships for undergraduate students in Computer Science including:

    Many current and former students of Computer Science at the University of Manchester have worked in these labs. If you'd like me to put you in touch with any of them to discuss your applications, let me now.
