The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Science, Technology and Policy Program is designed to provide opportunities to participate in programs, projects, and activities at the Office of Fossil Energy (FE). The STP Program provides an opportunity for highly talented scientists and engineers to participate in policy-related projects at DOE's Office of Fossil Energy in Washington, D.C. This opportunity will include engineering and scientific tasks to determine and advise on advanced carbon utilization technologies and systems. Carbon utilization is a broad term used to describe the many ways that captured carbon oxides - principally carbon dioxide (CO2)– can be used or “recycled” to produce economically valuable products or services. This opportunity will focus on the program’s conversion pathway, which includes electrochemical systems, to transform carbon dioxide into fuels and chemicals.
As a participant, you will be placed with the Carbon Management division and learn skills and activities that are critical to FE’s technology mission. You will participate in technology management projects within the Carbon Utilization Program. For more information, visit https://www.energy.gov/fe/carbon-utilization or more information about the Office of Fossil Energy visit: https://www.energy.gov/fe/office-fossil-energy.
You will receive a stipend as support for your living and other expenses during this appointment. Stipends are typically based on the participant’s academic standing, discipline, experience, and research facility location. Relocation expenses, not to exceed $5,000, incurred in relocating from your current address to Washington, D.C. (if more than 50 miles from the address shown on the application), may be reimbursed. You will receive a travel allowance of $5,000 per Appointment year to cover travel-related expenses to scientific and professional development activities.
This opportunity is available to U.S. citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents (LPR).
Nature of 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 appointment letter and Terms of Appointment.
Applicants should have completed a graduate program in Engineering (e.g. Chemical or Electrical) or in one of the Physical Science disciplines (e.g., Chemistry, Geology, Geochemistry, Geophysics, etc.) from an accredited institution.
Preferred Skills for each project are listed below:
