The world is a rapidly changing place. New challenges are constantly emerging that require scientific exploration. The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Computational and Statistical Analytics division develops early career opportunities through internships by identifying and developing talented individuals for exciting assignments of the future. Our nation's growing emphasis in computational solutions for national security is creating outstanding career opportunities in fields that include:

  • Cyber security
  • Global security
  • Nuclear physics and engineering
  • Visual analytics
  • Natural language processing
  • Math and statistics
  • Computer science and engineering

At PNNL, we conduct core research in these fields in order to address the challenges that our nation faces. We deliver algorithms, data management, visualizations, data intensive information systems, and secure computing infrastructures to enable next-generation capabilities important for national security. We believe innovation is accomplished through a combination of experienced scientists and smart, creative young professionals.

My research experience at the lab has been phenomenal. I've acquired new skills and gained knowledge while working alongside great scientists. This internship has directed my career path in choosing to advance my education and research expertise by obtaining a doctorate degree."
