Do you know an amazing leader that should be part of the Oppenheimer program? Would this person benefit from a deep dive into the complexities and opportunities facing DOE and the National Labs? Fellows are drawn from the full spectrum of professions throughout the National Lab system. If you know a National Lab staff person that should be part of Oppenheimer, take a few minutes to submit a peer nomination using the form below! Your peer nomination will initiate the process.
Don't delay, as December 8, 2023 is the deadline for Labs to submit the nomination package for consideration. Please note this is not the deadline for the submission of peer nominations. By submitting a peer nomination, you simply initiate the process for a Lab to consider advancing your peer nominee as a candidate.
OSELP is designed to bring together exceptional professionals who have the potential to contribute significantly to DOE’s work, whether at DOE or in the National Labs, academia, or industry. Over the past six Cohorts, fellows have represented a diverse range of disciplines and professions. Lab Directors are strongly encouraged to consider candidates from diverse disciplines, professions, and backgrounds. The inclusion of participants from outside the scientific and technical domains has immensely enriched the program.
Peer nominators and Labs should consider the importance of diversity to the Oppenheimer program. The program’s impact is achieved not just through site visits and think-piece development. The diverse backgrounds and unique perspectives that the fellows bring from across the complex substantially enrich the fellowship experience and create a distinctive team dynamic each year. This diversity—and the shared experiences and knowledge it enables—is a core feature of the Oppenheimer program.
