We’re building a clean energy workforce that looks like America!

Whether you are a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) student or have a different professional background, we are on the search for individuals who are passionate about building a career in the energy sector. At the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management (FECM) we have a wide range of opportunities to help you get involved in the clean energy transition as the nation moves toward a greener future.

- Our Mickey Leland Energy Fellowship (MLEF) program is a 10-week summer research fellowship for undergraduate and graduate STEM students which aims to strengthen the field’s diversity. To date, the program has mentored nearly 1,000 of the best and brightest learners across the country. Visit the MLEF website to read about the real-world, hands-on research experience our students gain.

- The Historically Black Colleges and Universities-Other Minority Institutions (HBCU-OMI) program is one of our longest-running university training initiatives, providing research and development opportunities for traditionally underrepresented populations in STEM fields. The program also directly aligns with the Biden Administration’s Justice40 initiative—a commitment to advance environmental justice and spur economic opportunity for disadvantaged communities. Learn more about the participating universities and colleges by visiting the National Energy Technology Laboratory website.

- Our latest recruitment campaign, the Clean Energy Corps, offers yet another opportunity to get involved in the country’s clean energy transition. From careers in project management to information technology to human resources, the Department is recruiting an additional 1,000 employees to advance President Biden’s goals to create good-paying jobs, spur economic growth, and reach net-zero emissions by 2050. Visit DOE’s website to hear from the Secretary of Energy and learn about the application process.

And there’s more! Want to know what it’s like to work in STEM and at DOE? Throughout the month of February, get a glimpse into the life of our staff, along with many of our STEM program graduates, to hear first-hand about what it’s like working at the Department and with the #FECMTeam.

You won’t want to miss this! To keep up with the conversation, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. We hope this will give you a better understanding of the impact you can make should you apply for any of the hiring opportunities above—now or in the future.
