The Laboratory’s greatest strength is in our multidisciplinary capabilities. Los Alamos maintains broad science, technology, and engineering (ST&E) capabilities across multiple disciplines, leveraged to meet the Laboratory’s diverse national security missions.
Our four strategic cross-Laboratory "Science Pillars" allow us to draw on capabilities across the Lab to accomplish our missions. Each Science Pillar covers a principal theme with scientific goals fundamental to building and investing in our science, technology, and engineering expertise:
Information, Science, and Technology
Materials for the Future
Nuclear and Particle Futures
Science of Signatures

I have been working at Los Alamos National Laboratory full-time (Less than a year)
Outstanding: benefits, peers, and opportunities. The Northern New Mexico area is beautiful and the climate is outstanding. Roughly 10% veteran workforce! We have a very diverse workforce. Great life/work balance; 9/80 schedules.
The area is too remote for some, but that is one reason I like it. You will find plenty shopping in Santa Fe or Albuquerque.
Advice to Management
We love the 9/80 scheduling and the internal growth opportunities.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Los Alamos National Laboratory (Los Alamos, NM) in October 2018.
I was contacted by a member of the prospective team and we scheduled a phone interview with the team. They called on time and we had a good interview for approximately 45 minutes. Questions were mixed technical and personal, but process was fairly relaxed.
