Navigating a National Lab Career: Science, Technology, and Engineering Priorities at Los Alamos
John Sarrao (Los Alamos National Laboratory)
The Department of Energy’s seventeen National Laboratories provide a career path that’s in between academia and industry, and the National Labs are hiring, with a number of Labs having hiring needs that are greater than 1000 staff/year. Nevertheless, the National Labs in general, and Los Alamos in particular, are relatively unknown to many students (and faculty) in academia. This presentation provides an overview of the Department of Energy National Laboratories in general and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in particular. By highlighting LANL’s strategic priorities and mission needs, we hope to foster further collaborations and enhance pipeline opportunities between Los Alamos and Texas A&M, especially for physicists (of which the speaker is one).
