SIAM Lunch with Scientists from Los Alamos
Series: Program in Applied Mathematics Brown Bag Seminar
Location: MATH 402
Presenter: Mark Schraad, Dan Israel, Chris Werner, and Rosalyn Rael, Los Alamos National Laboratory

Los Alamos is currently in an aggressive hiring mode and recruiting new interns, postdocs, and staff. They are excited to talk to students about employment opportunities at Los Alamos. Come join us to learn about what it's like to be part of a team of ~200 Ph.D.-level scientists with backgrounds spanning physics, engineering, and mathematics at Los Alamos working on algorithm and code development, computer science for modern architectures, weapons-relevant physics, verification and validation, uncertainty quantification, etc.

A bit about them… Mark Schraad is the Division Leader of the Computational Physics Division within the Weapons Physics Directorate at Los Alamos. Dan Israel is a staff scientist at Los Alamos, joining the lab after graduating with a Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Arizona in 2005. Chris Werner is a group leader overseeing the development of state-of-the-art computational simulations that support various missions at Los Alamos. Rosalyn Rael is an alumna of the Program in Applied Mathematics here at Arizona, obtaining her Ph.D. in 2009.

Come with questions and enjoy informal discussions over lunch with them to get advice about internship/postdoc/employment opportunities, mathematical careers at Los Alamos.
