 The Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Postdoctoral Research Awards offer unique research opportunities to highly talented Ph.D. recipients to engage in innovative research at universities, national laboratories, and other research facilities that are conducting applied research in support of EERE. Awards are designed to advance the development of clean energy technologies in energy efficiency for buildings, industry and vehicles; and renewable energy using biomass, hydrogen and fuel cells, geothermal, solar, and water and wind power.

The EERE Postdoctoral Research Awards will provide participants with opportunities to continue their education and training and to become interested in long-term research goals in areas related to energy efficiency and renewable energy.

Emphasis on a research mentoring approach is given to provide participants opportunities to become integral members of research teams, to increase their chances of successfully completing their research plans, and to make significant contributions to EERE Programs. Participants will benefit from the experience and guidance of dedicated researchers in their proposed field. Participants are expected to dedicate 80% of their time on a research core project and 20% of their time in an innovation project. This 80/20 approach to the research plan is critical to encourage the new ideas and concepts needed for the development of cutting-edge technologies. An Annual Research Meeting will bring together EERE participants, EERE staff and researchers to allow the opportunity to share and exchange ideas and techniques. The interaction of ideas, skills, approaches, and technologies will be of mutual benefit to the applicant, host facility, and EERE.

The EERE Postdoctoral Research Awards will provide an annual stipend, allowances for health insurance and research-related expenses, and limited reimbursement for relocation expenses. The Annual Research Meeting will be organized and hosted by EERE for participants.
