Diverse Group of Users
MagLab users work across our seven facilities and are at different points in their careers. About 29% of student users and 27% of postdoc users are female.
More than 1,400 researchers from around the world do experiments at the lab every year (see our 2016 User Institution Map (Interactive map). The lab offers a wide array of resources to these users, including a deeply experienced support staff, customized tools, training, financial support, housing assistance and more.
Attending meetings and conferences is a vital and necessary career-development step for scientists in all disciplines, but such attendance can be financially and logistically burdensome for early career scientists struggling to balance this time-intensive part of their careers with the demands of family life.
Visiting scientists who share the results of their experiments use our facilities for free. In addition, the MagLab offers several funding opportunities to assist with dependent care, travel and other expenses.
The MagLab has a comprehensive set of safety programs designed to ensure the safest possible conditions for faculty, staff, users and visitors. The MagLab uses Integrated Safety Management (ISM) as a process to ensure safe, quality work. Training is required for all staff, faculty and users, as well as for long-term visitors.
