U.S. citizenship is not required for participation in some of the Science Education Programs at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. (Some ORNL postings may require U.S. citizenship, even if the overall program does not require it.) If you do not have a current status that permits participation, we may be able to file for an H-1B immigration status for temporary employees in a specialty occupation or sponsorship in the Exchange Visitor (J-1) Program (research scholar and short-term scholar categories only). Students and recent graduates with an F-1 status may also be eligible for participation depending on the program.
