Leveraging powerhouse resources in theory, computation, and experiments, our postdoctoral researchers take on the greatest challenges facing the world today.
Science in the National Interest
According to an international poll* conducted by The Scientist magazine, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is ranked in the top 25 national institutes as one of the best places to work for postdocs. Our vibrant postdoc community enjoys ready access to the best resources in high-performance computing and experimental research. They get hands-on experience while working closely with leading scientific researchers and colleagues in many fields that have national and global impact.
Many postdoc appointments are posted directly through WCI or sometimes through one of the scientific discipline organizations such as Computation, Engineering, and Physical and Life Sciences within the Laboratory. We have many opportunities in a wide range of disciplines:
- Computational physics/algorithm development
- Engineering (aerospace, chemical, mechanical, nuclear, and more)
- Experimental science/diagnostic development
- Material science
- Physics (astro, atomic, geo, nuclear, particle, plasma, and more)
