The U.S. Department of Energy, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Science, Technology, and Policy (STP) Program serves as a next step in the educational and professional development of recent graduates by providing opportunities to participate in policy-related projects at DOE's EERE offices in Washington, D.C. Participants will collaborate with and learn from government scientists, engineers, program managers, and policymakers to gain experience learning about projects that support DOE’s mission to combat the climate crisis, create good clean energy jobs, and promote energy justice.
The Joint Office of Energy and Transportation (JOET or "Joint Office") is an office funded under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) to coordinate and leverage activities across the U.S. Department of Energy and Department of Transportation. The mission of the Joint Office is to accelerate an electrified transportation system that is affordable, convenient, equitable, reliable, and safe. The Joint Office will harness a broad range of public and private sector expertise to accelerate transportation electrification, lower emissions, and enable new economic and workforce opportunities to create a resilient and sustainable transportation future by making Electronic Vehicles (EVs) an easy choice for everyone. JOET applies a collaborative interagency approach to support the investment in, and deployment of, a convenient, reliable, affordable, accessible, and equitable national EV charging network supporting the successful execution of BIL funds for (1) states to build a national EV charging network along corridors, (2) community EV charging, (3) low- and no-emission transit buses, and (4) electric school buses. The Joint Office portfolio includes technical/equity assistance and capacity building, development and support of program guidance, standards, and requirements, proof-of-concept demonstrations, stakeholder engagement, and program and equity evaluation for the deployment of the EV charging network and other electrification investments in the BIL.
JOET is seeking dynamic, innovative Fellows for electric vehicles charging research. This Fellowship will last one year, with the opportunity to renew for additional years at discretion of the sponsoring office. Areas of professional development may include:
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.
