The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of International Affairs (IA), Office of Multilateral Climate and Clean Energy Engagement seeks motivated candidates to take on today’s pressing climate challenges through a fellowship with its DOE Science, Technology, and Policy (STP) Program. Specifically, this fellowship will focus on the challenges of industrial decarbonization through the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM). The CEM is a multilateral organization with 29 member countries, including the United States, working to rapidly increase the deployment of clean energy technologies.

This fellowship may support the development and harmonization of low- and near-zero emission intensity thresholds for steel, cement and concrete as well as reporting practices. It may also involve research and policy analysis under other U.S.-involved CEM initiatives. Qualifications in this subject area are desired (see below).

A fellowship in IA will give you the opportunity to apply scientific, technical, and policy knowledge to the development and implementation of international climate and clean energy solutions as well as to continue your education and involvement in areas that support the DOE mission.

Successful fellows come from a wide range of backgrounds, but education, experience, and/or demonstrated interest in the following subject areas is desirable: 

  • Carbon accounting, environmental impact assessment, or product performance assessment, preferably with an analytic focus
  • Steel, cement, and concrete production processes and understanding of major emissions sources in these processes
  • Product life cycle assessments
  • Product Category Rules and Environmental Product Declarations
  • Reading and interpreting technical standards
  • Data handling

Benefits: Participants will receive a stipend to be determined by IA.  Stipends are typically based on the participant’s academic standing, discipline, experience, and research facility location.  IA may authorize a supplemental stipend to offset the costs of health insurance.  Participants are eligible to purchase health insurance plans offered through ORISE.  Participants may receive an allowance for education and/or scientific activities as approved by IA.

Apply Today!

The details: Located in Washington, D.C. You must be a U.S. Citizen with a Bachelor’s, Master’s, or Doctoral Degree. If currently pursuing their degree, all degree requirements must be completed by July 31, 2024.

The Colleges of ForestryAgriculture and Science are teaming up to bring a professional grant writing workshop to the OSU community. “Write Winning Grant Proposals” will be held virtually June 17 and 18th,  2024 from 8:30am to noon followed by an additional virtual half-day, Jun 20, 2024, 8:30 to noon training, “Write Winning NSF CAREER Award Proposals”. The College of Engineering is offering the same training, “ Write Winning Grant Proposals”, in-person for one full day Oct 15, 2024 followed by half-day Oct 16th 2024 in-person, “Write Winning NSF CAREER Award Proposals”.

We are making both the June (virtual) and October (in-person) sessions available to tenure-track academic faculty and to non-tenure-track research faculty in any College or unit for maximum flexibility. However, please attend your own College’s session if you can.

Note you must attend sessions on either Jun 17-18 or the full day session Oct 15th in order to participate in the NSF CAREER session.  Check your eligibility to apply for NSF CAREER awards here

Both workshops offer excellent basics that are widely applicable to multiple agencies. The June workshop will focus on NSF with additional USDA content, and the October workshop will focus on NSF with additional NIH content. 

As part of your participation in the workshop, you will need to select an agency focused workbook.  Please indicate in the survey which one you would like.  There is an $80 fee (includes shipping to OSU campus location) for the workbook.

Please respond to the request survey at the link below by May 13, 2024 in order to receive priority registration.
