The Oak Ridge Institute for Science Education is now
accepting applications for postdoctoral opportunities in the U.S. Department
of Energy (DOE) Science, Technology and Policy Program. Selected candidates
will be placed with DOE’s Office of Fossil Energy.
Applicants will have the opportunity to apply for numerous advanced power
generation technology areas, including extreme environment materials, rare
earth element and advanced coal processing, advance combustion systems,
carbon capture technologies, carbon utilization technologies, carbon storage
technologies and computer science. Once selected candidates are placed in a
program, they will be involved with project oversight and program direction.
To be eligible, candidates must be a U.S. citizen and currently pursuing, or
have already completed, a PhD in computer sciences, engineering or a physical
science discipline such as, but not limited to, chemistry, geology,
geochemistry and geophysics. Each Fossil Energy program has a unique set of
preferred skills candidates should be familiar with before applying to the
selected research area, which is detailed in the application.
Initial appointments last for one year and may be extended for four
additional years contingent upon availability of programmatic funds and the
candidate’s ability to continually meet the program terms and conditions.
Accepted participants will receive a stipend determined by the Office of
Fossil Energy for the duration of the appointment. A relocation allowance may
be provided for participants relocating to the hosting facility.
Applications must be submitted electronically by June 29, 2018. For more
