Description:
The Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (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 at DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy 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 participant will learn how the Water Power Technologies Offices carries out its mission to conduct early stage research and development to advance marine energy and hydropower technology development and gain hands-on experience by applying their knowledge within specific fields of expertise aligned with the Office's work areas. The participant will be placed with the Marine Energy Team within the Water Power Technologies Office, which works to facilitate the development and deployment of these technologies in an environmentally-sound and cost-effective way through focused research and development, stakeholder collaboration, and funding opportunities to overcome technology and deployment barriers.

Selected candidates will receive a stipend as support for their living and other expenses during this appointment. Stipend rates are determined by EERE officials and are based on the candidate's academic and professional background.
