The Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Postdoctoral Research Awards gives recent PhD recipients the opportunity to conduct applied research at universities for up to two years.
The EERE Postdoctoral Research Awards supports scientific research in energy efficiency and renewable energy by giving its participants access to unique education and training opportunities, other top scientists in their field, and state-of-the-art projects and equipment. Research opportunities will be awarded to qualified applicants to work on collaborative applied research of mutual interest to the applicant, the host facility, and the EERE Program sponsoring the award.
Former participants of the EERE Postdoctoral Research Award Program are now faculty and staff scientists at major research institutions and national laboratories. It is the expectation that participants will go on to permanent staff positions in academia, at national laboratories, or in industry upon completion of their appointment.Eligibility & Requirements
