Welcome to ATCC Careers


Your incredible career journey starts here.  For over 90 years, ATCC has been compelled by its deep-rooted mission to improve global public health through advancements in science. At its inception in the 1920s, ATCC was regarded as simply a microbe culture collection, a repository of microorganisms scientists could draw from to conduct their research to make new discoveries. Today, ATCC provides the world’s leading scientists with the largest and most diverse collections of biological materials. 


We give scientists the tools they need to make discoveries that improve and save lives. When you work at ATCC, you become a part of that mission, one we’ve committed to for almost 100 years.

Deemed Export Compliance


United States export control laws prohibit ATCC from providing foreign nationals with access to certain controlled technology and information, including software and technical data, unless such access is authorized. Under these export control laws, the release or disclosure of such controlled technology to a foreign national is deemed to be an export of that material to the foreign national’s home country and may require an export license. A foreign national is any person who is not (i) a U.S. citizen or national; (ii) a lawfully admitted permanent resident; (iii) a person who has been granted refugee status or asylum; or (iv) a temporary resident under the 1986 legalization program.
