 About the Office of Manufacturing and Energy Supply Chains

Established in 2022 as a new office under the Office of the Under Secretary for Infrastructure, the Manufacturing and Energy Supply Chain (MESC) office serves as the frontline of clean energy capital deployment, accelerating America’s transition to a resilient, equitable energy future through $20 billion of direct investments in manufacturing capacity and workforce development. MESC develops and provides the analytical tools that help to inform programs and investments across DOE and the U.S. Government.

What will I be doing?

MESC seeks a fellow to learn about developing strategies for its Manufacturing and Workforce Deployment area. The fellow will gain a better understanding about the MESC team while learning about activities critical to the office's mission.

Your learning opportunities may include:

  • Learn about strategic analyses and building dynamic models, to identify technology areas, geographies, population groups, and program types in which additional public investment may be warranted.
  • Networking with stakeholders across government; industry; national labs; the workforce, educational, and economic development systems; and others.
  • Learn about project management of MESC awards (including interfacing with awardees to better understand operational problems and possible solutions)
  • Participating in strategic planning for MESC and other DOE initiatives
  • Learn about authoring external-facing reports, including Reports to Congress, on topics related to clean energy manufacturing workforce and economic development, industrial decarbonization, or related topics
  • Contributing to collaboration with inter-office groups focused on advancing and institutionalizing cross-DOE priorities including workforce development, energy equity, environmental justice, and industrial decarbonization.
  • Expanding knowledgebase on scoping and coordinating National Laboratory studies on similar topics.

These activities may be carried out in collaboration with teams of multi-level federal employees, other participants, support service contractors, and experts from national laboratories.

The Details Participants will receive a base stipend based on relevant experience, to be determined by DOE-MESC.

 Stipend range: $90,000-$120,000, annually.

Participants are eligible to purchase health insurance plans offered through ORISE. Participants may receive a health insurance stipend supplement to offset premium costs. 

Participants may be eligible to receive a travel and training allowance of $10,000 per appointment period to be used for travel expenses for scientific and professional development activities and required travel for team meetings during the fellowship.
