Join us as we explore the ultimate structure and dynamics of matter and the properties of energy, space and time – at the smallest and largest scales, in the fastest processes and at the highest energies.

Our nearly 1,600 employees work in the foothills overlooking Stanford University and the communities of Palo Alto and Menlo Park. Here, scientists, engineers, technicians and support professionals work together to conduct world-class research in high-energy physics, X-ray science, structural biology, chemistry, materials and energy sciences, advanced accelerator physics and particle astrophysics/cosmology.

Final candidates, with the exception of staff scientists, are subject to background checks before starting work at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. Internal candidates who are selected for hire may require degree verification and/or credit checks based on the requirements of the new position.
