Great Challenges Accepted
PNNL is a research institution with Pacific Northwest roots and global reach. Our researchers confront problems with the highest consequences for society and human understanding. They pursue challenges like modernizing the nation’s power grid, decoding the universe, and safeguarding ports worldwide from nuclear smuggling.
As such challenges evolve, PNNL researchers develop new theories, methods, and technologies. They dig deeper, ask better questions, and take more informed approaches.
Our researchers embrace the dynamic interplay of problems and knowledge. They work with advanced equipment and facilities to collaborate, take risks, and find insights in unlikely places.
We are continually seeking to build and strengthen our team by attracting new members and retaining those we have. One recruiting advantage we have is the quality of life outside the lab. The Tri-Cities region is sunny and dry and offers a lifestyle that is active and affordable. There are great schools and ready access to the great outdoors. Major cities like Seattle and Portland are just a few hours away.
