The Oppenheimer Science and Energy Leadership Program (OSELP) is pleased to announce the selection of Fellows for the 2020 – 2021 Cohort. Established in 2017, OSELP is a distinguished Fellowship Program that brings together exceptional leaders to explore the complexities, challenges and opportunities facing the National Lab system and the Department of Energy (DOE).
The fourth OSELP Cohort consists of 18 individuals representing all 17 of the DOE National Labs, with professional backgrounds spanning technical, operational, and strategic domains. Selection as an Oppenheimer Fellow is a highly competitive process. Candidates are nominated by National Lab Directors, assessed by a committee of former National Lab Directors and former senior DOE officials, and accepted into the program by the National Laboratory Directors’ Council (NLDC).
As the premier leadership development program of the NLDC, OSELP is building the National Lab leaders of tomorrow. Through a series of site visits to National Labs, OSELP immerses its Fellows in the singular breadth, diversity, and complexity of the National Labs, DOE, and their partners, and provides them with a unique opportunity to engage deeply with senior Lab leadership and explore innovative ways to improve the DOE and National Lab collective enterprise.
Fellows are also charged with developing think-pieces that address major organizational, policy, scientific, or other challenges within National Labs’ mission space. These think-pieces are presented to the NLDC and other senior leaders at a capstone event. OSELP Fellows also benefit from the experience and advice of program mentors. Mentors are drawn from former Lab Directors, former senior DOE officials, and other distinguished professionals. Exposure to these senior leaders can have a transformative impact on the perspectives and career trajectories of Cohort members.
