The Fusion Energy Sciences Postdoctoral Research Program offers recent doctoral degree recipients the opportunity to conduct research in the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) fusion energy research and development programs. Participants acquire experience and training in areas of fusion energy science, interact with outstanding scientists and engineers, and have access to advanced equipment and facilities. Appointments are made to designated DOE laboratories, universities, and other FES-approved facilities performing fusion-related research. The program provides opportunities to learn and collaborate with researchers at international research facilities working on research/technology related to the DOE FES mission to accelerate progress toward improved technologies.
