Where You Will Work

Located in northern New Mexico, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is a multidisciplinary research institution engaged in strategic science on behalf of national security. LANL 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.

Specifically, the Detonator Production Division is located at the foot of the Jemez Mountains, minutes from the Valles Caldera and is part of the Manhattan Project National Park. This unique location provides a beautiful atmosphere to carry out a successful career. It is not uncommon to witness employees hiking the numerous trails, cross country skiing, or just sitting outside enjoying the wildlife during lunch breaks. We invite you to consider joining our team and making major contributions to our Nation.

Within the Detonator Production Division is the High Explosives Detonator Fabrication Group (DET-1). DET-1 is responsible for producing and maintaining detonator technology for our nation’s stockpile. Our mission is dual-purposed: we must produce the detonators of the future while also ensuring the reliability of detonators already in the nation’s stockpile. That’s why, as DET-1 becomes the primary manufacturer of our nation’s most important detonators, we’re not only focused on finding people who can solve unique technical challenges. We also want people who can see ways to make products with better quality and efficiencies than ever before.
