National High Magnetic Field Laboratory
The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (MagLab), which is an IGEN Partner, regularly participates in IGEN meetings and programs like the IGEN's LinkedIn Professional Networking Group, a private LinkedIn Group which is designed to connect graduate students with national labs representatives. MagLab staff are also part of the development team for the Supporting Mentors of Postdocs curriculum development program.
MagLab is committed to developing a pipeline for UREM students to transition into professional careers and to attend to their professional development. As such, we are developing materials for training of their research mentors, and constructing logistic guidelines to make students known to hiring managers and researchers.
MagLab Education and Outreach Programs
Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who want research experience at the cutting edge of magnetic field, pressure and temperature need look no further than the Magnet Lab. Research at the lab covers many disciplines — physics, biology, chemistry, engineering — and all the combinations of each you can imagine.
About the Lab
The only facility of its kind in the United States, the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (MagLab) is the largest and highest-powered magnet laboratory in the world. Every year, more than a thousand scientists from dozens of countries come to use our unique magnets with the support of highly experienced staff scientists and technicians. Thanks to funding from the National Science Foundation and the State of Florida, these researchers use our facilities for free, probing fundamental questions about materials, energy and life. Their findings result in more than 400 scientific publications a year in peer-reviewed journals such as Nature, Science and Physical Review Letters.
