Professors Wanted! Help Cultivate the Next Generation of Building Scientists

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Building Technologies Office is seeking university and college professors to join the JUMP into STEM program’s Professor Team to help cultivate the next-generation of building scientists.

Jump into Stem

What is JUMP into STEM?

JUMP into STEM is a university and college student competition that is inspiring the next generation of building scientists and encouraging diversity in the field. Student teams participate in the real world learning experience by submitting written responses to challenges that reflect the industry’s most pressing topics. Three new challenges impacting the current state of building science are released each August.

Challenge-level winners are matched with mentors in their field of interest. Eligible teams are then invited to present at the Final Event, which will be held at Oak Ridge National Lab in January 2024. Final Event student winners receive a 10-week paid summer internship at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, or Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

What is the Professor Team?

Members of the Professor Team are a critical link connecting students with the competition. They provide input on challenges to ensure they best fit with their curriculum requirements and are invited to monthly meetings to receive competition updates and discuss best practices with the Professor Team network.

This is the perfect opportunity to meet service-related metrics, form a connection with the U.S. Department of Energy and its national laboratories, and make a meaningful impact on building science education.
