What will I be doing?
As a member of the team, you will engage and interact closely with Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) staff and National Laboratory scientists on research and development of technology for building systems integration and optimization to produce significant energy savings in the commercial real estate market. During your appointment, you will undergo a full immersion experience in SETO’s technical projects and activities, interacting with experts in academia, industry and at the national labs. You may also engage with other programs at the Department of Energy and across the Federal government.
The learning and professional development opportunities include:
•Stakeholder Engagement. Engage with DOE staff to build and maintain relationships with strategic partners working on emerging tech, technology for building systems integration, and energy efficiency programs.
•Technical Expertise. Engage with DOE staff to provide feedback and/or recommendations on strategic progress or course correction for a variety of technical projects relating commercial and private energy efficiency products/technologies and solutions.
•Creative Vision. Engage in strategic planning for technology research and development, reviewing, recommending, and implementing projects that advance the SETO mission, resulting in measurable, and trackable alternative energy developments.
•Communication. Engage with DOE staff to prepare and present written and oral briefings and reports to senior program staff, DOE leadership, external partners, and industry stakeholders.
Why should I apply?
You 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 enhance your education and training in many areas including but not limited toenergy efficiency and technology RD&D, enabling solar to support the reliability, resilience, and security of the grid, analytics-based energy management, voluntary energy efficiency policies, energy data management, and analytics platforms including energy modeling software/tools and energy policy. Increase your marketability in these disciplines, collaborate with top scientists and engineers, and gain insight into career opportunities through your experiences and under the leadership of your mentor.
Where will I be located?
You will receive a competitive stipend, an allowance to offset the costs of health insurance, research travel and materials up to $10,000, and relocation expenses reimbursement up to $5,000.
You must be a U.S. Citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident and completed or be in the process of completing an associate’s, bachelor's, master's, or doctoral degree.
