Pacific Northwest National Laboratory¹s Visual Analytics Group continues to grow, and we¹re looking for researchers with a passion for visualization and data analysis to join us.

Our collegial, 45-strong team in visual analytics loves making big, complex data useful through new computational methods, great visual design, compelling interaction, support for sound analytic techniques, and solid engineering.  We invent new visual metaphors, create analysis algorithms, and deliver software products that put new analytic capabilities into our users' hands across the country and around the world.

As a visualization researcher at PNNL, you¹ll lead teams to create new visual analysis and interaction techniques that help users draw insight from complex data.  You¹ll use visualization as a tool to help solve some of the nation¹s most pressing challenges in science, energy and environment, and security.  Your work will  support world-changing advances through side-by-side interaction with users and domain experts.   We value creativity and integrity above all, and we create diverse, multi-disciplinary teams to drive innovation.  You¹ll have the chance to choose the projects you work on, and will lead your own research in the areas about which you are passionate.   This position carries the expectation of creating new business in visualization (for instance, through proposal writing) and publishing scientific results in the peer-reviewed literature.

We actively support the continual growth of our staff through new leadership opportunities, conference and workshop participation, and internal seed R&D funding to help identify and grow the next great ideas.  We maintain an open, fun, and flexible culture.
