Bringing new ideas to long-standing challenges in transactinium science

    The Los Alamos branch of the Seaborg Institute integrates research programs on the chemical, physical, nuclear, and metallurgical properties of the lighter actinide elements, with a special emphasis on plutonium. The Institute serves as a national center for the education and training of students, visiting scientists, and faculty at all educational levels in transactinium science.


    Actinide Research Quarterly

    The Actinide Research Quarterly (ARQ)is a publication of the Glenn T. Seaborg Institute for Transactinium Science, a part of the LANL Institutes National Security Education Center.

      Summer Research Fellowship

      Fellowships generally run 10-12 weeks, and give students an opportunity to join Los Alamos scientists in independent research projects that can contribute to their thesis or advanced degree. Research fellowships are offered in two major areas: Nuclear and Radiochemistry and Actinide Science.

    • G. T. Seaborg Institute Postdoctoral Fellows

      The Seaborg Nuclear Science Fellowships for Properties, Theory, and Measurements for Understanding the Function of Heavy Elements support research in nuclear science relevant to Laboratory mission areas by attracting and funding a future generation of postdoctoral scientists to foster sustained excellence and enhanced external visibility in nuclear-science-related areas and to establish a broad intellectual community for nuclear science.
