Divisions & Facilities

The Computing Sciences Area is comprised of three divisions that operate two national facilities. The Computational Research Division is home to mathematicians, computer scientists (who study and innovate in computing architectures, software and algorithms) and computational scientists (who specialize in using computational methods to study non-computer science subjects, such as climate or physics). The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) is DOE national user facility that serves researchers across the nation. It is housed within the eponymous NERSC Division. The Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) is also a national facility operated by the Scientific Networking Division.



NERSC is the primary scientific computing center for the Department of Energy Office of Science and a DOE National User Facility that supports the work of more than 7,000 scientists. Read More »



ESnet links scientists at national laboratories, universities, and other research institutions around the world through high-bandwidth, reliable connections. Read More »
