You can make a difference
Since its origins, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has pushed the limits of science, technology, and research in an effort to better understand the world and protect the people in it—but we do so much more than that. To this day, we continue to innovate, collaborate, and explore, backed by the minds of thousands of talented researchers, operations staff, and creative professionals. We are a globally-recognized leader in bioengineering, high-performance computing, environmental research, nuclear science, and more. And none of this research would be possible without our employees across different fields, from skilled labor to engineering. No matter what you do here, you can help change the world.
The vaccine is mandatory for all Laboratory teleworking and on-site employees. Proof of vaccination status will be required. If you are unable to be vaccinated due to medical, pregnancy or religious reasons, we offer accommodations in accordance with applicable law.
Protecting the health and safety of our candidates, employees and their families is our highest priority. We continue to closely monitor the evolving situation and have implemented changes in our interviewing process. Most of our interviews will be conducted virtually until further notice.

Benefits and perks you'll love
Hear firsthand from our employees
I think you would be hard pressed to find another employer that offers everything that LLNL does. The benefits and wages are competitive. There is an overall sense of inclusiveness regardless of your position. People treat each other with respect. Management respects your opinions, suggestions and you genuinely feel you have a voice. Your management encourages you to develop yourself professionally and seek opportunity for growth (even if it requires you to move to another directorate).
I really enjoy working with the people in a friendly work environment at LLNL. It is enjoyable to work together to achieve the overall missions at LLNL.
Working at the Laboratory provides many opportunities for personal and career growth. You are ensured your work is important, and you are continuously learning new things. The work-life balance is excellent and the culture is great! There are many different social groups to meet new people and build connections within LLNL.
