If you have recently earned your Ph.D. and are interested in doing postdoctoral research in the area of concentrating solar power (CSP), the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is interested in you.

NREL‘s Concentrating Solar Power group is seeking participants in an upcoming postdoctoral fellowship opportunity to support CSP research at the lab. The fellowship is being offered through the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) program.

The objective of the EERE Postdoctoral Fellowships is to create the next generation of scientific leaders in energy efficiency and renewable energy by attracting the best scientists and engineers to pursue breakthrough technologies in a highly prestigious postdoctoral research program. To meet this objective, EERE Fellows will have access to unique education and training opportunities, top scientists in their field, and state-of-the-art projects and equipment.

NREL is one of the DOE national laboratories that is participating in this effort. The CSP group at the lab offers a wide range of expertise and capabilities that can support the research of EERE Fellows. Applications are now available and the application deadline is June 30, 2011.
