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.

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).
One of the things I love most about the lab is the technical breadth that I am exposed to on a daily basis.
There’s always something new to learn, especially when working with cutting edge technology in HPC. The lab is very supportive of its employees participating in courses and training to continue building their professional skills, even if that skill isn’t something you’re using immediately on a project. Being involved in a handful of areas means that no two days are alike.
Motivation is found when you are part of something bigger than yourself.
It is truly a privilege to be able to support the Laboratory’s mission. Being part of a team that strives to enhance scientific capabilities is so rewarding. With so many opportunities, I would encourage individuals from all backgrounds to consider a position at LLNL.
