IGEN Engagement

Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), which is an IGEN Partner, has played an integral part in the initial DDLP and subsequent launch of the project. ANL also regularly participates in IGEN meetings and programs like the IGEN's LinkedIn Professional Networking Group, a private LinkedIn Group which is designed to connect graduate students with national labs representatives.

ANL Education and Outreach Programs

Argonne offers a variety of research appointments, cooperative education opportunities, and specialized schools to fit the needs – and schedules – of any graduate student. We encourage students pursuing a Master’s degree as well as Ph.D. candidates to check out the many opportunities that ANL has to offer. 

Examples of ANL graduate programs offered included internships, research, training, temporary employment and a visiting student program.

About the Lab

Argonne is a multidisciplinary science and engineering research center, where talented scientists and engineers work together to answer the biggest questions facing humanity, from how to obtain affordable clean energy to protecting ourselves and our environment. Ever since we were born out of the University of Chicago’s work on the Manhattan Project in the 1940s, our goal has been to make an impact — from the atomic to the human to the global scale.

The laboratory works in concert with universities, industry, and other national laboratories on questions and experiments too large for any one institution to do by itself. Through collaborations here and around the world, we strive to discover new ways to develop energy innovations through science, create novel materials molecule-by-molecule, and gain a deeper understanding of our planet, our climate, and the cosmos.

Surrounded by the highest concentration of top-tier research organizations in the world, Argonne leverages its Chicago-area location to lead discovery and to power innovation in a wide range of core scientific capabilities, from high-energy physics and materials science to biology and advanced computer science.
