DOE Science, Technology and Policy Opportunity-Office of Policy, Office of Energy Jobs Workforce Development Fellow
About the Office of Policy
The Office of Policy (OP) serves as the principal advisor to the Secretary, Deputy Secretary, and the Undersecretaries on policy and related integration of energy systems. The Office serves as a focal point for policy coordination within the Department on the analysis, formulation, development, and advancement of energy policy and related programmatic options and initiatives that could facilitate the transition to a zero-carbon, equitable, and secure energy economy.
The Office of Energy Jobs (OEJ) within OP serves as the focal point within the DOE on policies to promote the creation of quality jobs in the energy sector, particularly those that support the Administration’s priorities for jobs with high standards and the right to collective bargaining. The OEJ works collaboratively with the Department of Energy, as well as with related federal agencies and regulatory bodies, to ensure the successful transition to a zero-carbon economy and the creation of meaningful, union job opportunities for all Americans. Additionally, OEJ is the focal point within the Department for the transition of the American energy sector by ensuring that both job creation and job impacts are taken into consideration in the Department of Energy’s funding, initiatives, and priorities. The Office of Energy Jobs also provides coordination and support for a number of DOE's energy workforce building and training programs, and leads the data collection and publication of the U.S. Energy Employment Report (USEER).

As a participant, you will be under the guidance of a mentor who will provide training opportunities on how energy and infrastructure job creation and assignments are conducted by DOE. This Fellowship focuses on workforce development strategies and how to improve DOE’s activities, policies, and programs to support inclusive pathways to good quality energy jobs and careers.

- Conduct research and identify resources to support the OEJ on a range of portfolio topics.
- Conduct research on how training and workforce development activities impact current and future jobs by researching and analyzing US energy job trends, including synthesis of information with a focus on energy justice.
