Washington Research Foundation Innovation Fellowships in Clean Energy

A  Postdoctoral Research Program Focused on Advanced Materials for Energy, Energy Storage, and Grid Integration Technologies

A clean energy economy requires the integration of energy conversion devices, smart grid and storage technology. CEI is seeking to increase Washington’s profile in these fields through an advanced program of world class research and education.

Washington Research Foundation With the support of a generous gift from the Washington Research Foundation (WRF), CEI has launched the WRF Innovation Fellows Program in Clean Energy to help recruit the next generation of innovation leaders in solar energy conversion, energy storage, and grid integration technologies to the University of Washington.

We are recruiting exceptionally talented researchers who have recently finished their PhD programs to join CEI laboratories at the UW campus or its affiliates. Prospective fellows should identify a UW faculty member (or collaborating group of UW faculty) to serve as a local nominator of the project, and are encouraged to consult the list of CEI Member Faculty for assistance, though nominations from any UW faculty member will be accepted.

WRF Innovation Fellows will receive an annual salary of $65,000 plus benefits and an additional research and travel stipend of $10,000.

Applications for Innovation Fellowships are accepted annually, with a deadline of January 15.

Washington Research Foundation Innovation Fellows should acknowledge Clean Energy Institute funding in their posters, talks, and publications and use the CEI logo appropriately.
