Job searching tool for students, postdocs
LOS ALAMOS, N.M., July 15, 2014—Los Alamos National Laboratory recently launched its new student mobile app that students and postdoctoral candidates can use to learn about employment opportunities, science research, education programs and more. The Los Alamos Students mobile app is free and can be downloaded from iTunes and Google Play (for android platforms).
“The Laboratory’s new Student App is a great way for students and post-docs to make contact with the Lab and learn about all the exciting opportunities available and the work the Laboratory does in service to the nation,” said Carolyn Zerkle, Los Alamos’ Associate Director for Business Innovation.
Los Alamos National Laboratory typically employs more than 1,200 part- and full-time students and post-docs in a given year.
The Student App has introductory information about Los Alamos’ Student Programs Office, life at the Laboratory, a link to the official Laboratory employment application and the student selection process, an interactive, fun quiz to challenge students on their knowledge of the Lab's research and development programs, and how the Lab is making contributions to the nation through its scientific research.
Information for graduate-level students and candidates interested in postdoctoral opportunities, various summer school programs and learning opportunities, student salary information and opportunities for international students also are available on the LANL Student App.
Current Los Alamos National Laboratory employees also will find the student app useful for learning about the Lab’s science capabilities and innovations, local tourist destinations, and to quickly access Laboratory news, feature stories, publications, social media tools and videos.
Los Alamos National Laboratory, a multidisciplinary research institution engaged in strategic science on behalf of national security, is operated by Los Alamos National Security, LLC, a team composed of Bechtel National, the University of California, BWX Technologies, Inc. and URS for the Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration.
Los Alamos enhances national security by ensuring the safety and reliability of the U.S. nuclear stockpile, developing technologies to reduce threats from weapons of mass destruction, and solving problems related to energy, environment, infrastructure, health, and global security concerns.
