Argonne’s people-centered culture permeates our world-class community of talent. This community advances science and technology. We design and build the tools of science, carry out innovative research, and lead through our contributions to the major science-centered conversations and initiatives of our times.

We are passionate about problem-solving and dedicated to pursuing the science and technology solutions that will make our world a better place for all.

We aim to recruit people who aspire to share their training and talents to fulfill key Lab missions, whether as scientists, engineers, other technicians like glassblowers or postdoctoral students; in Lab leadership or administrative support roles; and in numerous areas like IT, equipment and facilities maintenance, operations (HR, finance, public affairs, legal) and more.

We pair curiosity with a roll-up-your-shirtsleeves work ethic to collaborate, meet challenges and get the job done. Our innovative solutions tackle problems today, and our pivotal discoveries lay the foundation for future decades of technological advancements that drive U.S. prosperity and security.

We value diversity and inclusion and we work together to uncover new and inspired answers that we could never have found alone. Embracing the Chicagoland area as our home, we are actively extending Argonne’s capabilities and resources to underrepresented communities and are committed to building the workforce of the future.

We pursue discovery together. We all drive the mission forward and celebrate success as one Argonne team. We assemble the best with a clear sense of purpose to work on the world’s grandest challenges with respect, integrity and teamwork.

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, we are shining a spotlight on a few of the lab’s Latino team members.

Argonne is like many of the other national laboratories in that the research and development is cutting edge, and the work is very rewarding in its mission to help people around the world live a better life. However, Argonne also has the great advantage of being a part of a culturally diverse community in the greater Chicagoland area. Anyone can find somewhere in the Chicagoland community to satisfy their interests.

Marco Rodrigues

Assistant Materials Scientist

During my first appointment at the lab I found Argonne to be a truly welcoming place. A place like Argonne is quite unique in the research world, as it allows you to maintain hands-on involvement with projects on a daily basis, creating endless opportunities for learning and reinventing oneself.

Anita Garcia

Executive Assistant

I would encourage young people to reach out and learn about all the opportunities that a world-class scientific research facility such as Argonne has to offer — not just for scientists and engineers but also in administration, operations, safety and health-related fields.
