DOE Science, Technology and Policy Program Opportunity – Office of Energy Justice and Equity Fellow


The mission of the Office of Energy Justice Policy and Analysis (EJE5) is to implement research, evaluation, and technical assistance DOE-wide and throughout Federal energy policy to advance racial and ethnic equity and support underserved and disadvantaged communities and individuals.


What will I be doing?

During the fellowship, the selected fellow(s) will support the implementation of Community Benefit Plans (CBP’s). CBPs are a new requirement for many DOE funding opportunities that put the social needs of a project on level with the technical needs. Fellows will learn to describe how the project advances four core principles: investing in America's workforce; engaging communities and labor; advancing diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility; and implementing Justice 40 in the CBP.


The fellow will participate in the implementation of this framework in DOE funding by coordinating with different DOE offices and answering specific questions about CBPs. Fellows may also participate in drafting additional CBP-related research, CBP guidance, standard operating procedures, and reporting.


Participant Benefits: During the appointment, you will receive a monthly stipend. Stipend amounts are determined by the Office of Energy Justice and Equity (EJE) and are typically based on the participant's academic standing, discipline, and experience. A supplemental stipend to offset the costs of health insurance may also be authorized. Participants are required to have health insurance and are eligible to purchase health insurance plans offered through the Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU)'s network coverage plan provider. Participants may also receive an allowance for education and/or scientific activities.
