For six years, the Energy Technologies Area (ETA) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) invited applications for a distinguished postdoctoral fellowship opportunity. The fellowship allowed outstanding recent Ph.D. recipients to engage in innovative research leading to impactful scientific solutions for society's most urgent environmental problems.
About the Fellowship
The ITRI-Rosenfeld Postdoctoral Fellowship recognized the contribution of Arthur H. Rosenfeld, Ph.D., to the advancement of energy efficiency on a global scale. In the 1970s, Dr. Rosenfeld pioneered energy efficiency technology research at what would become Berkeley Lab's ETA. Today, ETA carries out world-class research on advanced energy technologies, energy analysis, and environmental impacts of energy use.
The Industrial Technology Research Institute of Taiwan (ITRI) is a nonprofit research and development organization engaging in applied research and technical services. ITRI is committed to developing sustainable energy and environment technologies for a better future.
The fellowship aimed to foster the visionary thinking exemplified by Dr. Rosenfeld, by supporting postdoctoral researchers who can demonstrate a strong research interest and leadership in the area of improving energy efficiency.
The ITRI-Rosenfeld Fellowship was enabled by a gift from ITRI and by the support of the ETA at Berkeley Lab.
Appointment Term and Benefits
The selected applicant served a two-year term appointment, following a successful evaluation after one year. The fellowship included a competitive salary and benefits package and a relocation allowance. The fellowship awardee also received an allowance of up to $10,000 per fellowship year to cover expenses for equipment and professional development activities.
Fellowship Participant Expectations
ITRI-Rosenfeld Fellowship participants carried out innovative research in the energy and environment area, published impactful papers in peer-reviewed journals, presented seminars at ETA and attended major conferences. Additional expectations included a final report at fellowship conclusion to include: a brief summary of the research conducted and copies of publications resulting from the research.
