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 Lab is located in the heart of the Livermore Valley in the East Bay area of California, close to major metropolitan areas like San Francisco, Oakland, and San José. The city of Livermore offers a rural/suburban environment replete with lush vineyards, scenic rolling hills, a downtown area, shopping, and a diverse range of recreational activities like hiking, fishing, and camping. For Lab employees and their families, the San Francisco Bay Area provides an exceptional range of resources, including access to major universities, other Department of Energy labs, and various research and development communities.
Science today knows no borders, and a diverse workforce can facilitate collaborations that will lead to better solutions to the complex challenges faced by LLNL and its stakeholders. Our lab population strives to be diverse and inclusive, as are members of the global scientific community. Fostering diversity can create an atmosphere in which scientists and engineers are encouraged to share their ideas and where we value inclusivity and diversity as a scientific strength.
By harnessing the multiple perspectives and experiences that our employees bring to LLNL every day, we will drive the creativity, innovation, and effective decision-making that we need to carry out our customer’s requirements and meet the demands of for a fast-paced global economy and we will deliver scientific discovery and innovation that our Nation values and needs to move us into the next century.
