About Argonne National Laboratory
Argonne National Laboratory was founded as a chemistry, materials and nuclear engineering laboratory in 1946, as the successor to the Manhattan Project’s Metallurgical Laboratory. Since then, as part of the Department of Energy (DOE) network of national laboratories, Argonne has built on its original strengths and expanded its mission in response to national needs. Today, Argonne serves America as a leading science and energy laboratory distinguished by the breadth of its research and development (R&D) capabilities combined with a unique portfolio of experimental and computational user facilities.
Located just outside Chicago, Argonne has been managed since its founding by The University of Chicago (UChicago), one of the world’s preeminent research universities. Argonne’s workforce of over 3200 includes over 1500 scientists and engineers. The Laboratory operates five world-renowned scientific user facilities, which together support nearly 8,000 researchers annually.
