DOE Science, Technology and Policy Opportunity-Energy Security Opportunity


About the Office of Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response


The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response (CESER) is looking to develop the future leaders in energy security policy by bringing in STEM students and graduates with technical knowledge and experience. Participants will be embedded in CESER’s team, mentored by senior CESER staff, and assist on a policy-related project. 


CESER’s mission is to strengthen and improve the security of U.S. energy infrastructure against all hazards - manmade or natural. CESER is also excited to advance DOE’s priorities – including combating the climate crisis, creating clean energy jobs, and promoting equity in energy.



What will I be doing?


CESER’s State, Local, Tribal and Territorial (SLTT) Program supports governors’ advisors, state energy offices, public utility commissions, state legislators, emergency managers, tribal leaders, and public power utilities through association partnerships and direct coordination. As a participant in the program, you will learn skills and participate in activities critical to CESER's mission and become part of CESER's SLTT Team. Additionally, you will collaborate with CESER staff and with a variety of other Federal agencies, and interact directly with state energy officials and the associations that support them.  More specifically, you will learn about and engage in the following activities:

  • Conduct analysis of new and existing state, local, tribal, and territorial government energy security plans, document process flows, and evaluate streamlining options and provide recommendations. 
  • Participate in DOE working groups and share awareness of CESER’s resilience efforts across various DOE offices.
  • Analyze recent state local, tribal, and territorial government energy plans, document process flows, evaluate streamlining options, and provide recommendations.
  • Participate in the designing of materials, such as user-friendly guides and templates for stakeholders.
  • Collaborate with others to develop resources and support continuous process improvement.
  • Research and develop tools to problem-solve other issues identified by CESER.
  • Communicate key facts and analysis to senior leadership and stakeholders.


Participant Benefits: Participants will receive a stipend to be determined by CESER. Stipends are typically based on the participant's academic and professional background. CESER may authorize a stipend increase to offset the costs of health insurance. Participants are eligible to purchase the family or individual health insurance plan offered through ORISE.  Participants will receive a travel allowance to cover expenses related to travel and professional development activities as approved by CESER.
