Benefits & Compensation

Lovelace Biomedical wants every employee to be happy, healthy, and inspired! Lovelace provides a comprehensive benefits and compensation package to eligible employees, including:

Animal Housing

With more than 100 acres of land and 300,000 square feet of laboratory space, Lovelace Biomedical has one of the most extensive animal housing areas available among domestic preclinical research organizations — including unlimited space for expansion into new animal housing or experimental facilities. In addition to surgical suites and more than 90 animal rooms, our specialized on-site laboratories provide capabilities in histopathology, clinical pathology, analytical and bioanalytical chemistry, microbiology, virology, and cell and molecular biology.

Work-Life Balance

At Lovelace, we work hard. But we also enjoy our time away to recharge. Eligible Lovelace Biomedical colleagues accrue generous vacation and sick leave, as well as up to nine company-paid holidays.

Financial Security

We offer competitive salaries, sponsored retirement plans with employer contributions or matching contributions, and employer-paid life insurance and disability.

Continuous Learning

Our mission is predicated on the continued advancement of our employees. Lovelace Biomedical provides tuition reimbursement to eligible employees, ongoing scientific seminar series and training workshops. As a company, we invest in the development of our employees.

Community & Charity

Our colleagues love giving back to our communities. Employees donate to a number of causes throughout the year, including our annual holiday charity drive. Staff support many regional and national charities. In fact, the Lovelace family has contributed to the United Way and American Lung Association, among others, for over three decades.

More Perks!

Joining the Lovelace Biomedical team is like joining a family. You’ll be a part of our annual company picnic and holiday party, frequent pot-lucks, sports outings, contests, cook-outs and much, much more.

Albuquerque Living

The true Southwest awaits you in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Immerse yourself in our rich culture, gaze into our bright blue skies, and soak in the sun that shines 310 days a year against a gorgeous backdrop of the Sandia Mountains. Once you breathe in the high desert air, scented with sage and piñon, you’ll understand why Albuquerque is like no other.
