Rich Scientific Community

New Mexico has a rich history as a hotbed of scientific innovation due to the presence of three federal R&D laboratories and a growing high-tech community. The two Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration national laboratories, Los Alamos and Sandia, conduct multidisciplinary research in fields such as national security, space exploration, nuclear fusion, renewable energy, medicine, nanotechnology, and supercomputing, and has led to several local technology startups and other employers choosing to make New Mexico their home base.

The Land of Enchantment

Aside from offering tremendous career possibilities, New Mexico offers beautiful landscapes, a laid-back culture, an exceptional quality of life, an affordable cost of living, and a unique blend of cultures, outdoor recreation, and events. Nature is our playground in New Mexico with stunning vistas, plentiful outdoor recreation opportunities, sunny days, and a mild high desert climate. There is a community for any life-style: hiking, biking, downhill skiing, white water rafting, golf courses, art galleries, operas, and world-class restaurants.
