Description

The Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Science, Technology and Policy (STP) Program serves as a next step in the educational and professional development of scientists and engineers by providing opportunities to participate in policy-related and technical projects at DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy in Washington, D.C. and Golden, CO. Participants will become part of a group of highly-trained scientists and engineers with the education, background, and experience to be part of the workforce that supports the DOE's mission in the future. You will acquire experience and enrichment in the following areas:

  • Gain deep insight into the federal government's role in the creation and implementation of policies that affect energy technology development
  • Contribute to the implementation of energy policies by applying scientific and technical expertise to the development of solutions for problems in areas of energy efficiency and renewable energy
  • Continue your education and involvement in areas that support the EERE mission either in a technical or policy-related role
  • Introduce policy-related knowledge and interest into research facilities supporting the EERE mission

The U.S. Department of Energy EERE's Science, Technology, and Policy Program seeks talented and innovative individuals to engage in innovation and collaboration in clean energy initiatives. This Fellowship will last one year, with the opportunity to renew for additional years at the discretion of the sponsoring office.

Participant Benefits

Selected candidates will receive a competitive stipend. Stipend rates are determined by DOE officials, and are based on the candidate’s academic and professional background. Candidates will also be eligible to receive a stipend supplement to offset the cost of health insurance premiums and relocation of up to $5,000. A travel and research allowance of $10,000 will also be available to participants for each appointment year. Extension of the appointment beyond the first year will be subject to satisfactory progress toward completion of the project assignments, and availability of funds.

Nature of the Appointment

The participant will not enter into an employee/employer relationship with ORISE, ORAU, DOE, or any other office or agency. Instead, the participant will be affiliated with ORISE for the administration of the appointment through the ORISE letter of appointment and Terms of Appointment. 

This is a continuous posting.  Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and selected as opportunities become available in various sponsoring offices.
