U.S. Department of Energy 2018 Fusion Energy Sciences Postdoctoral Research Program


Now accepting applications for the U.S. Department of Energy 2018 Fusion Energy Sciences Postdoctoral Research Program

 

The purpose of the Fusion Energy Sciences Postdoctoral Research Program is to offer recent doctoral degree recipients the opportunity to conduct research in DOE fusion energy research and development programs. Participants acquire knowledge and experience in areas of fusion energy science, interact with outstanding scientists and engineers, and have access to advanced equipment and facilities. Appointments are made to designated DOE laboratories, universities and contractor fusion energy centers. The mission of the DOE Fusion Energy Sciences is to expand the fundamental understanding of matter at very high temperatures and densities and to build the scientific foundation needed to develop a fusion energy source. Although tremendous scientific progress has been made since the inception of fusion energy research in the United States and internationally, fusion’s research frontiers remain replete with open problems of critical importance.

 

Selected Postdoctoral students receive an monthly stipend of $5,583.33 ($67,000.00 annually), a supplement to offset the cost of health insurance, a travel allowance and a relocation allowance, if eligible.

 

To qualify, applicants must be U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents and must have received a doctoral degree in an appropriate science or engineering discipline within three years of the desired starting date or expect to complete all requirements for such a degree prior to the desired starting date. Applications are due January 31, 2018.
