Community Profile
Albuquerque is a vibrant city at the heart of New Mexico, rich with diverse cultures, authentic art, and multi-cultural traditions that have shaped the city’s centuries-old story. No matter your interests, the city has countless opportunities for you to explore. Authentic New Mexican cuisine, world-class museums, a magnificent view from a world-class tram ride to the top of Sandia Peak, and soaring high above the city in a hot air balloon are just some of the many attractions Albuquerque has to offer. Nestled within the Rio Grande valley and nearby Sandia Mountains and with more than 310 days per year of sunshine, Albuquerque exists as one of those few places where you can ski down world-class slopes and play a round of golf at one of the city’s many award winning golf courses, all in the same day. A high mountain desert, Albuquerque’s cool nights, warm days, and moderate weather make for exceptional hiking, biking, and exploring archaeological and geographical wonders. Nearby Santa Fe is a visitor destination where you can enjoy the rich traditions of Native American and Spanish culture, art, music, and opera. Albuquerque is home to the state’s largest research laboratory, the University of New Mexico, the highly-rated Central New Mexico Community College, Kirtland Air Force Base, and Sandia National Laboratories.

An excellent competitive compensation package will be offered to the selected candidate.
