Lab Population

The Laboratory population is over 8,000 people. About 4,000 of those are employees, but we also have over 4,000 visiting researchers and guests who come here on an annual basis for access to our user facilities.

Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley maintain a close relationship, with over 250 joint faculty appointments in addition to the graduate students and undergraduate assistants who work here for limited periods.

More information about Berkeley Lab’s workforce demographics is available from the Diversity and Inclusion Office.
