DOE Science, Technology and Policy Opportunity - Industrial Decarbonization Opportunity at DOE Office of International Affairs, Office of Multilateral Climate and Clean Energy Engagement-Apply Today!
*Application Deadline: October 11, 3:00PM Eastern Time Zone*
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.
What will I be doing? 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.
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. 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.
