Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is a U.S. Department of Energy Laboratory located in the city of Livermore, CA.
The STAR program came to life at Livermore Lab in the summer of 2007 through the vision of a research scientist and with the help of the National Science Foundation and the California State University system.
Today, Livermore Labs continues to be the flagship of the STAR program with nearly a hundred research placements to date. In operation since 1952, Livermore Labs has applied cutting edge science and technology to enhance national security.
OUR WORK AT LLNL
Livermore Labs has earned a reputation of the Laboratory of choice for science and technology solutions to the most pressing national and global security problems. Teams of physicists, chemists, biologists, engineers, computer scientists, and other researchers work together in multidisciplinary teams to achieve technical innovations and scientific breakthroughs that find solutions to critical problems of national and global importance.
SUMMER RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES
LLNL will again be offering several STAR Fellowships in biological, physical, computational, and engineering fields. Fellows working on biological projects will be expected to participate in a training and outreach program during the first week of your fellowship.
