Working with Lincoln Laboratory

What to know

  • Lincoln Laboratory is a Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) where export-controlled and classified research is conducted because restricted material is permitted.
  • Research is restricted to US citizens, which can exclude students and post-doc participation, and can lead to publication restrictions, negating Fundamental Research exemptions.
