1 “AT PNNL, OUR MISSION IS TO TRANSFORM THE WORLD THROUGH COURAGEOUS DISCOVERY AND INNOVATION.” – PNNL THEORA R. RICE Pacific Northwest National Laboratories

2 Overview Vision: Science and technology for prosperity, safety, and security.  Research  Information analysis, cyber security, non-proliferation of WMD  Increase U.S. energy capacity, reduce dependence on imported oil  Reduce effects of energy generation One in 10 DOE national laboratories  Also works with DHS, NNSA

3 Overview 4,700 Employees Business volume of more than $1.1 billion Locations  Main facility in Richland, WA  Marine research facility in Sequim, WA  Satellite offices in Seattle & Tacoma, WA, Portland, OR, and Washington, D.C. Operated by Battelle since 1965

4 Overview – Research Facilities The Physical Sciences facility  Material Science, radiation detection, ultra-trace analysis Computational Sciences Facility  Information analytics, high-performance computing, cyber security, bioinformatics Biological Sciences Facility  Bioenergy, environmental and soil remediation, systems biology, microbial and cellular biology, analytical interfacial chemistry

5 Overview – Research Facilities Electricity Infrastructure operations Center  Better management of power grid. Marine Sciences Laboratory Others  Research Aircraft, Pretreatment Engineering Platform, Microproducts Breakthrough Institute, Instrument Performance Testing, etc.

6 History 1965 – Battle assumes management of Hanford site 1967 – Arid Lands Ecology Reserve becomes reserve, PNL takes over management – Only NW organization chosen by NASA to analyze lunar material 1980 – Mt. St. Helens erupts, PNL gathers samples to determine environmental and health impacts 1998 – PNNL awarded seven R&D 100 Awards

7 News Stories Smart grid management technology Supercomputer development for Electrical Molecular Sciences Laboratory Big data Alternative fuel

8 Current Projects/Pain Areas Electricity Infrastructure  System monitoring and analytic innovations  End-use efficiency and demand response  Renewable integration and energy storage  Cyber security and interoperability  Securing the grid  Defining standards for secure, two-way communication and data exchange

9 Current Projects/Pain Areas National Security  Stories  “Securing Facilities Against Nuclear Theft”  “Keeping Nuclear Commodities Secure” What’s really interesting  Cyber security barely mentioned  Normally off-hand  Deb Frincke, hiring cyber security analysts

10 Employee Benefits Lowest Salary (Full time): $40k Highest: $120k Full health insurance Retirement benefits Career Development  Tuition Reimbursement Work/Life Balance  Paid Time off – Two weeks basic vacation  Flexible schedules including telework

11 Cost of Rent Richland, WA  $ per month Seattle/Tacoma/Sequim, WA  $1000+ Portland, WA  $1000+ Washington, D.C.  $1700+
