Message from the Director

Eric D. Evans Eric D. Evans
Director of Lincoln Laboratory

Since its creation in 1951, MIT Lincoln Laboratory has maintained an impressive record of technical innovation in critical national security technology areas such as satellite communications, air and missile defense, space surveillance, optics, laser systems, sensor systems and technology, advanced electronics, cyber security, and homeland protection.

The Laboratory's reputation has been built on the strength and quality of its technical staff, and we allocate a major portion of time and resources to recruiting, staff development, and continued education. Formal graduate studies are strongly encouraged as one means of ongoing learning. For staff members interested in pursuing technical graduate degrees at the master’s and doctoral levels, the Laboratory offers the opportunity to apply for admission to the Lincoln Scholars Program, which enables the pursuit of advanced degrees on a full-time basis.

The Mission Areas section of this site provides overviews of our objectives, fields of research, and future outlooks. The About section has information about the Laboratory's history, facilities, technology transfer activities, and more. Also available on the site are profiles of some of our technical staff. I encourage you to read about their experiences and accomplishments and to note their comments on the opportunities and benefits of working at MIT Lincoln Laboratory.

We are committed to sustaining our legacy of technical excellence, innovation, and integrity. If you are interested in conducting next-generation applied research and development in a dynamic, exciting environment, I encourage you to consider applying for employment at MIT Lincoln Laboratory.
