The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) seeks motivated students and postgraduates to participate in projects at the forefront of the clean energy transition, helping to address the climate crisis. FECM plays an important role in providing solutions that address the climate crisis. We are working to minimize the climate and environmental impacts of fossil energy and to advance carbon management.
FECM research priorities include point source carbon capture, CO2 removal, CO2 conversion into products, reliable CO2 storage; blue hydrogen production; and critical mineral production from industrial and mining waste. Point source carbon capture and reliable storage (CCS), as well as CO2 removal to address our hardest to decarbonize sectors are essential to get where we need to be – a low-carbon economy at the lowest possible cost. As a global leader in the research and development of CCS, carbon removal, reliable storage, and the conversion of CO2 into products, FECM is also working on developing and deploying low-carbon supply chains like cement and concrete, steel, paper, fuel, nylon polyester, and other important products.
As an ORISE participant, you will gain insight into the Federal government’s role in the creation of clean energy technology research and development; be provided an opportunity to contribute to a project or projects related to energy and climate change policies by applying scientific and technical knowledge; and continue your education and involvement in areas that support the DOE mission either in a technical or policy-related role. You will become part of a team and be mentored by highly-trained staff that support the DOE’s priorities to combat the climate crisis, create clean energy union jobs, and promote energy justice.
