Los Alamos National Laboratory employs a large and talented population of postdocs and students to perform cutting edge research. Even though a number are retained, there is not a sufficient number of long term appointments available to be able to retain all of the highly talented postdocs and students.  By offering these events, organizations such as yours are provided the opportunity to identify/recruit for your organization’s hiring needs.  The following highlights the various events we have to offer:

Tuesday, August 30th – Employer Information Sessions, Postdoc Research Symposium, and Opening Reception

The information session allows an individual employer to have a spotlight on their company and allows attendees to have a Q&A session outside of the busy Career Fair day. The Postdoc Research Symposium is a Lab-wide event where postdocs are provided the opportunity to showcase their research thru a poster presentation in an environment that fosters enhanced collaboration and technical discussions. The opening reception offers a low stress opportunity to allow networking between attendees and recruiting representatives at a historic Los Alamos venue.


Wednesday, August 31st – Career Fair and Interviews

The Career Fair provides participating organizations the opportunity to recruit from the Laboratory’s diverse, talented postdoc and student populations comprised of Science, Technology, and Engineering early career researchers.  In advance of the event, registered participating organizations will receive copies of the submitted CVs/Resumes.
