Subject: Federal Postdoc Award Opportunity for Solar Energy Researchers

In order to spur innovation in solar energy, the U.S. Department of Energy
Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is now accepting
applications for postdoctoral researchers in solar energy to participate in
the EERE Postdoctoral Research Awards
<http://energy.gov/eere/education/eere-postdoctoral-research-awards>. The
EERE Postdoctoral Research Awards support research on energy efficiency and
renewable energy to help solve our nation’s energy challenges. This year,
this exciting program will offer up to five recent Ph.D. recipients the
opportunity to conduct applied research projects to advance breakthrough
solar energy technologies at universities, national laboratories and other
research facilities. Former recipients of the EERE Postdoctoral Research
Awards are now faculty and staff scientists at major research institutions
and national laboratories.
This research will contribute to the SunShot Initiative
<http://www.energy.gov/sunshot> goal to make solar energy technologies
cost-competitive with traditional energy sources by 2020. Reducing the
total installed cost for utility‐scale solar electricity by approximately
75%, from the 2010 baseline, to roughly $0.06 per kWh without subsidies
will enable rapid, large‐scale adoption of solar electricity across the
United States.

Potential research topics <http://energy.gov/eere/education/research-topics>
for these awards include behavioral and data science to lower solar
electricity cost, systems integration, concentrating solar power, and
photovoltaic cells, modules, and materials. The awards will provide a
highly competitive two-year stipend with health insurance as well as
allowance for travel, relocation, and research expenses. Applicants must be
U.S. citizens or permanent residents, complete all requirements for their
Ph.D. by May 31, 2015, and have a Ph.D. for no more than five years.
The application period for the EERE Postdoctoral Research Awards closes on
May 7, 2015. The awards will be announced in July 2015 for the projects to
start in September 2015. Apply today
<http://energy.gov/eere/education/eere-postdoctoral-research-awards> and learn
more about former awardees
Thank you,
