Nuclear research at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) crosses multiple mission areas, including nuclear energy, national security, and fundamental sciences. At the 2024 American Nuclear Society (ANS) Annual Conference, hear the latest findings from our experts—including research to resolve the back end of the fuel cycle, such as disposal, storage, transportation, and consent-based siting.

Meet us at this event to learn about PNNL’s current job opportunities, specialized nuclear research facilities, depth of capabilities, and multidisciplinary approach to providing science-based solutions for these complex challenges.
