Solar Energy Innovators Program Opportunity

The purpose of the Solar Energy Innovators Program is to enable selected applicants to conduct practical research on innovative solutions to the challenges faced by electric utilities, energy service providers, and electric public utility commissions as the levels of solar energy, as well as other distributed energy resources (DERs), increase on the electrical grid.

Selected applicants, referred to as “Innovators” herein, will participate for up to two years at a Host Institution on one or more topics related to the integration of solar energy.  The applicant to this program is the prospective Innovator. The applicant must identify a Host Institution and potential mentor at a utility, energy service provider, or public utilities commission (PUC) currently conducting research in an area related to the integration of solar energy onto the electricity grid.    Host Institutions may seek potential Innovators that are eligible to apply to the program, but it is the potential Innovator, not the Host Institution or mentor, who submits the application and supporting materials to this site.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Applications are downloaded for review on the first of the month, and applicants can expect to hear whether they move to the next stage within 30 days. Subsequent selection process stages include telephone interviews of the applicant and mentor. The process from application submittal to Innovator start date is approximately 3 months.  For more information and to apply visit https://www.zintellect.com/Opportunity/Details/DOE-EERE-RPP-SETO-2019-2100.

Princeton University: Data Scientists for Schmidt DataX Project

The Center for Statistics and Machine Learning’s DataX Fund supports the hiring of six data scientists who will create and improve data-analysis software to operate at large scale, leading to faster discovery, wider impact and greater continuity.

These data scientists will work in faculty-led, collaborative, multidisciplinary environments, and leverage their skills to advance the progress of data-driven scientific discovery. Three research areas are of particular interest:

  • Catalysis – led by the Department of Chemistry, in collaboration with other departments including Chemical Engineering, Molecular Biology, and Computer Science.
  • Biomedical Data Science – led by the Department of Computer Science, in collaboration with the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, Princeton Neuroscience Institute, and additional engineering departments.
  • Technology Policy – led by the Center for Information Technology Policy.

Prior expertise in the above areas is not required — the data scientists will be mentored in the relevant research area. They will have access to Princeton’s first-class resources and have the opportunity to co-author academic publications.

These are 3-year appointments offering a very competitive salary and excellent opportunities for growth and future career opportunities. The positions are part of the Schmidt DataX project, an initiative made possible by a major gift from Schmidt Futures. Feel free to contact Project Manager, Ellen DiPippo if you have any questions about the position or process.

RSO’s

Student Organizations: The university has over 300 registered student organizations available so students can participate in a wide range of activities.

  • UD’s Biomedical Engineering Society student chapter was approved in summer 2012. After being a registered student club for a year, it fulfilled the requirements to become an official chapter. Last year it piloted a peer mentor program to match freshman with older undergrads, based on selection criteria such as hometown and future career plans. Mentors and mentees frequently met and were encouraged to attend professional development events. BMES also kicked-off a hands-on engineering project with Prof. Cole Galloway in the Physical Therapy department. Dr. Galloway’s lab modifies off-the-shelf toy race cars to provide mobility to children who can’t crawl or walk due to cerebral palsy. The BMES students worked to transform these cars into power walkers for these children. In addition to these two programs, they fostered undergraduate interactions and investigated programs for the future (such as GREs, MCATs and graduate school programs).
