About Our Team
The Geophysics Department at Sandia National Laboratories advances geophysics for energy- and national security. We accomplish this through research and development efforts that address national-level challenges in Sandia mission area programs. These program areas include nuclear explosion monitoring, nuclear proliferation detection, subsurface characterization for energy exploration and production for both fossil and renewable energy, national defense, homeland security, and nuclear weapons. The department has a broad range of expertise in field seismology and modeling, field subsurface measurement and characterization, seismic, electromagnetic, atmospheric acoustic and infrasound modeling, evaluation of seismic and infrasound sensors and systems, and the processing, analysis, and interpretation of all types of geophysical data. The department's technical work spans the spectrum from theoretical to applied and includes strong modeling, lab, field data collection, and analysis capabilities. The department serves as Sandia's resource for geophysics expertise.

Sandia is required by DOE directive to conduct a pre-employment drug test and background review that includes checks of personal references, credit, law enforcement records, and employment/education verifications. Applicants for employment must be able to maintain a DOE Q-level security clearance, which requires U.S. citizenship. If you hold more than one citizenship (i.e., of the U.S. and another country), your ability to obtain a security clearance may be impacted.
