The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory employs a diverse work force that includes scientists, machinists, engineers, administrators, writers and even artists. The Lab is an exciting and international place to work and study, where on any given day you can hear English, Chinese, Russian or French, to name just a few, spoken in our halls.

The main campus of the Magnet Lab is based in Tallahassee near the campus of Florida State University. About 450 people are employed by or are affiliated with the lab’s Tallahassee facility. When you include the Magnet Lab branches at the University of Florida and Los Alamos National Lab, that number jumps by another 100.
