|Hacker News is filled with a wide variety of people, so I am hoping someone on here might be able to help me out with regards to what the best route is for working at the large hadron collider.|
I am a chemical engineering graduate student in the first year of my doctoral program. I've already done research in molecular dynamics simulations in conjunction with the supercomputers at a national lab in the US. I realize this is somewhat different than the work that most people do at the LHC, but there's always interesting niches that need to be filled.
My interests are more in the theoretical, physics-based side of chemical engineering instead of the engineering aspects, so a research career would be my best hope.
I will pursue the conventional means of trying to get a job at CERN, but as it seems like an incredibly exciting and unusual place, I am hoping that some folks on here may have some insight into a good route to get there. Thanks!
