Fuel Cell Technologies Fellow
*Applications reviewed on a rolling basis.
The Fuel Cell Technologies Fellow opportunity with the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office is now accepting applications.
What will I be doing? As a member of the team, you will both learn and contribute across the range of activities associated with managing applied research within the Fuel Cell Technologies Program. The Fuel Cells Technology Program activities will include monitoring project progress and milestones; reviewing and analyzing project progress reports and other technical reports; and engaging with project researchers. Key areas of research and development within the Fuel Cell Technologies Program include catalysts, membranes, membrane electrode assemblies, stacks, and balance of plant components.
Why should I apply? You will collaborate on the office's Fuel Cell Technologies Program, which focuses on developing fuel cells which are among the most promising technologies that are expected to transform the energy sector. They are highly efficient, fuel flexible, and offer diverse benefits. In particular, they are affordable, clean, and reliable fuel cell technologies that convert hydrogen to electrical power for a wide variety of applications, including transportation (automobiles, buses, trucks, rail, maritime) and stationary power generation (mid-scale electric power plants, backup power, small-scale distributed power plants for buildings).
Where will I be located? Washington, DC or Golden, CO
You will receive a competitive stipend, an allowance to offset the costs of health insurance, research travel and materials up to $10,000, and relocation expenses reimbursement up to $5,000.
You must be a U.S. Citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident and completed or be in the process of completing a bachelor's, master's, or doctoral degree.

Three levels of participation provide opportunities to a range of experience levels from recent graduates to experienced scientists and engineers to participate in the program.
Applicants should have an educational background in science and engineering and/or relevant work experience, preferably in hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. At least an M.S. degree or 3-5 years of equivalent experience are preferred. Applicants should have strong writing and communication skills; a writing sample will be requested. Applicants should be flexible with respect to the technical focus of their project, and willing to adapt and learn in new areas. Preferred applicants demonstrate superior academic performance and publication record, strong analytical, research and communication (oral and written) skills and demonstrated capacity for creative thinking, a strong technical background and increased knowledge in hydrogen and/or fuel cells (or another closely related field), and be interested in being part of a multi-disciplinary, fast-paced environment, focused on energy technology research and development. Experience and knowledge in technology commercialization is desirable, but not required.
