The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's (EERE) Science, Technology, and Policy (STP) Program serves as a next step in the educational and professional development of scientists and engineers by providing opportunities to participate in policy-related projects in Washington, D.C. Participants 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. 

The scope of EERE is wide, and thus is the scope of Strategic Analysis (SA) Team's portfolio encompassing analyses pertaining to the performance, costs, benefits, challenges, and opportunities of clean energy technologies. This broad purview allows SA to explore a diverse set of timely and challenging issues, ranging from identifying pathways to decarbonize major sectors of the economy (e.g., power, buildings, transportation, industry, and agriculture) to the associated challenges of integrating EERE technologies into the energy system. The team also develops new foundational and cross-cutting data, methodologies, and capabilities and contributes to EERE-wide/DOE-wide efforts in topics such as energy jobs and workforce development, energy equity and environmental justice, and circular economy.

The Strategic Analysis Team under the Office of Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary is seeking a talented and highly motivated Fellow to support its mission of providing credible and objective cross-cutting analysis for use in EERE decision-making. SA collaborates across EERE’s portfolio of buildings, industry, renewable power, transportation, and sustainable fuel investments and tackles technology policy and integration challenges that span multiple program areas. This Fellowship will last one year, with the opportunity to renew for additional years at the discretion of the sponsoring office. Learning opportunities include:

  • New clean energy analysis activities, projects, and initiatives across the buildings, industry, transportation, and power sectors.
  • Coordination of analysis across EERE program offices.
  • Interdepartmental, interagency, international, and congressional analysis requests.
  • Short-turnaround analysis.

These activities will be carried out in collaboration with a team of federal employees, other Fellows, support service contractors, and National Lab experts.

Fellows in SA frequently collaborate with representatives of other DOE offices and researchers at the DOE National Laboratories, as well as conduct their own independent research activities. The broad scope of SA’s mission gives Fellows the opportunity to explore a broad range of technology areas and participate in a wide variety of projects. Past Fellows have:

  • Provided analysis and strategic direction in support of high-priority initiatives, rules, and reports.
  • Under the guidance of a mentor, helped develop, scope, and engage in analysis projects with leading experts across EERE and the National Laboratories on clean energy challenges, opportunities, and impacts (e.g., assessing and improving circularity across the clean energy system).
  • Co-authored journal articles and reports, including Reports to Congress, on a myriad of topics related to EERE technologies and how they affect the energy system.
  • Collaborated on initiating a multi-National Laboratory study on grid applications for demand response and energy storage under high deployment of wind and solar power.
  • Engaged in scoping and coordinating National Laboratory studies on the impacts of potential national and state policy and regulatory changes on the energy sector.
  • Contributed to collaborative inter-office working groups focused on advancing and institutionalizing cross-cutting priorities including workforce development, energy equity, and environmental justice within EERE.

Location: Washington, D.C. - Hybrid and remote opportunities also available.
