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
The Lab maintains an onsite clinic that is available to all employees and provides comprehensive services and programs to promote employee physical and mental wellness.
Employees at the Lab enjoy complete access to a 17,000 square foot fitness facility equipped with weight rooms, an aerobics room with dynamic classes, cycling and circuit training. Additionally, walkers and runners can enjoy various outdoor trails and a 1/8 mile outdoor track.
Food services at various locations across the Laboratory complex offer a wide variety of fresh food choices for breakfast and lunch.

I have been working at Los Alamos National Laboratory full-time (Less than a year)
Everything about this workplace is a pro! I do not have a single complain!
Remote location, not much to do (other than the outdoors)
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Los Alamos National Laboratory (Los Alamos, NM).
The process took a total of 6 months after applying online. First they asked for reference letters, then a couple weeks later some writing samples. Shortly after I had a phone interview with the group leader that lasted about half an hour, mostly describing the position and asking some general questions about my research experience. About 2 months later we started arranging the in person interview.
The in person interview lasted a full day and half of the next one. On the first day I had to give a 1 hour presentation on my research to the full group, followed by individual half hour meetings with everyone. Most people were friendly and interested in my work, although the senior staff was a little less friendly and (obviously) much more old fashioned. I was told about how it would work if I got hired and the 3 years of training/education I'd have to do, and a bit about the security clearance aspect.
I was told about 2 weeks after the interview that they were not going to pursue my application further. I would have appreciated a more detailed explanation since my impression of their impression of me was very positive, but that's the way it goes sometimes.
