- About Us
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory University Partnerships Program (UPP) seeks to build and strengthen collaboration with universities and institutes around the world on cutting-edge research and deployment. By partnering with leading universities and research institutions, we leverage our scientific knowledge and state-of-the-art facilities to solve complex, multidisciplinary challenges in energy efficiency, sustainable transportation, and renewable power technologies, and grid integration.
One key pillar of the UPP is the Minority Serving Institution program that provides strategic engagement with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), and tribal serving institutions (TSIs) to help build and strengthen research, faculty, and student connections in a way that promotes diversity and inclusion across the energy workforce. To do this we understand that relationship building is a long-term, trust-based commitment, and the skills, perspectives, and assets of our MSI partners are championed in a way that will lead to a more inclusive clean energy future.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is seeking a Minority-Serving Institution Student and Faculty Program Coordinator to join the University Partnerships Program team. The successful candidate will have exceptional interpersonal skills along with strong written and verbal communication skills. The candidate will be a detail-oriented project manager and self-starter that brings creativity and enthusiasm to support the strengthening of renewable energy and energy efficiency programs in a way that promotes equity and inclusion with NREL’s MSI partners and the broader university ecosystem.
