The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has launched two new Initiative Fellowship Programs in the area of advanced clean energy technologies — the Postdoctoral Fellowships Program and the SunShot Program.
Initiative Fellowships Program are designed to prepare budding scientists and engineers for careers in clean energy.
Under the Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, the DOE is seeking up to 20 postdoctoral fellows whose academic careers have focused on specific topics in the following technology areas: building efficiency, industrial efficiency, vehicles, fuel cells, biomass, geothermal, solar energy, and wind or water power.
The Postdoctoral Fellowship Program will support research and development of breakthrough technologies over a two year period.
Applications for EERE Postdoctoral Fellowships are due by June 30, 2011; Fellowships will begin by mid-November, 2011, and last up to two years.
The SunShot Initiative Fellowship Program will select either recent Masters or Ph.D. graduates to focus on critical technology innovations that will advance the SunShot goal of reducing the total cost of solar energy systems by about 75 percent so that they are cost competitive with other forms of energy without subsidies by the end of the decade. More information is available on the SunShot Initiative website.
Applications for the SunShot Initiative Fellowships Program are accepted on a rolling basis.
Non-US citizens are eligible to apply as long as they have Legal Permanent Resident (LPR) status. For more information about eligibility requirements please visit.
