Come Work at Berkeley Lab’s Earth Sciences Division!

Berkeley Lab’s Earth Sciences Division (ESD) is at the crossroads of facing today’s challenges in creating a secure earth environment by pushing beyond the fundamental and applied sciences and developing technology and tools applicable for future research. Thriving in this environment demands new ideas, fresh thinking and individuals who want to make a difference any way they can. When you choose a career at Berkeley Lab you join a community.

Berkeley Lab was founded on the idea that pioneering science is best performed by multidisciplinary teams working together, and the concept of teamwork remains a vital component of daily life at the Lab. Our ESD Scientists perform environmental and energy research through considering process interactions occurring within and across many Earth system compartments, and they are developing 21st century approaches and scientific understanding relevant to both energy and the environment.

As a collaborative organization ESD relies on individual contributions, strong partnerships, and teamwork to build scientific and operational excellence.
