Science and Technology Policy Fellowships in the Geothermal Technologies Office, DOE, Washington DC
EERE-ORISE/STP-2014-3 ~ The Department of Energy’s EERE Science and Technology Policy (STP) Fellowships will serve as the next step in the educational and professional development of leaders in energy efficiency and renewable energy, providing an opportunity for scientists and engineers with relevant energy technology experience to participate in research, development, demonstration, (RD&D) and analysis projects.

Geothermal STP Fellows: Applicants selected as a Geothermal STP Fellow will be a member of the Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO) and carry out activities critical to GTO’s technology mission. The Fellow will participate in technology management within a designated GTO program and provide technical guidance, support, and collaboration to RD&D activities conducted by industry, university, National Lab, and other partners. The Fellow will also assist the GTO and assigned program team to develop and advance the Office’s technology priorities and goals through strategic planning, milestone development, and project execution. In addition, the Fellow will engage with other EERE and DOE Offices and geothermal stakeholders to advance shared technical and policy goals that breakdown technical and non-technical barriers to geothermal deployment in the U.S.

The STP Fellowships are for two years. The initial appointment period is one year. For more information, see http://www1.eere.energy.gov/education/stp_fellowships.html.
