Distinguished academics and researchers from the nation’s top schools can broaden Sandia’s perspective through collaborative research and joint appointments.

Sabbatical Research/Summer Faculty Research

Sandia encourages scientists to conduct short-term, joint research with university faculty on sabbatical or during the summer. Faculty must be invited by a Sandia sponsor and can have limited-term employment from four weeks to one academic year. The appointments provide meaningful work to professors widely recognized as authorities in their field, make valuable contributions to Sandia’s technical research, and promote university relations. Candidates are recruited nationally for summer appointments. Salary, round-trip travel, and per diem are provided. Available positions can be found on Sandia's Careers site.  Select "View All Jobs," search for the word "faculty," and follow application instructions.

University External Advisory Boards and Adjunct Professorships

Sandians participate on university external advisory boards across the nation, and experts from universities serve on Sandia advisory boards. Sandia also encourages its staff to serve as adjunct professors at regional and other universities.
