Moving to CERN

Life is exciting these days. At the beginning of last week, my husband and I arrived at CERN, where we will be working for the next two years as fellows.
CERN is a huge organization, so there is a lot of paperwork to do. The whole first morning was taken up by an introduction session. We were also informed of our new status: International Public Servants – cool! This is due to CERN’s special status as an international organization.
The Theory Division of CERN we are already quite familiar with, due to many visits over the last years (my first post at the Quantum Diaries was incidentally about such a visit). But apart from this, everything is new: new office, new colleagues, new life. It’s great to be here now with the LHC running and the excitement about the superluminal neutrinos. The place is really bustling with activity. We feel very privileged to be now part of CERN’s Theory Division and to be able to work alongside of many inspiring people. Hopefully, we’ll be able to start new collaborations here.
Our current homeless situation will also be remedied soon. We were lucky and already found an apartment into which we can move in a few days.
