Postdoc Program

Postdoctoral Scholars Program
The U.S. and Mexico work together to offer a program for postdoctoral scholars designed to increase ties between both countries, investigate new ways to develop energy efficiency and explore a variety of research areas including solar power, evolutionary biology, chemical biology and pathway and metabolic engineering. Since Mexico is a regional leader in Central America the U.S. benefits from this relationship and the Department of Energy has worked strategically with Mexico for decades.

Researchers in the LabWorking Together

In close coordination with Mexico's Ministry of Energy, and Energy Sustainability Fund, we manage a postdoctoral fellowship program at Berkeley Lab for Mexican researchers working on sustainable energy projects. This program reinforces current links with Mexican institutions and supports the sustainability of research partnerships -- not only with the Mexico Energy Initiative group in the Energy Technologies Area, but also with other Divisions at Berkeley Lab.
