NETL Methane Hydrates Program

The NRC, in association with the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), administers a Research Fellowship Program designed to support the development of Methane Hydrate science and enable highly qualified graduate and postgraduate students to pursue advanced degrees and training in an area of increasing national interest. 

With respect to the energy production potential of gas hydrates, interest is in projects that will provide improved tools, methods, and information relative to the remote detection, characterization, and appraisal of production potential of Methane Hydrates.  With respect to gas hydrates as a part of the global environment, interest is in projects that provide an improved understanding of the processes that control the distribution, occurrence, and stability of gas hydrates in marine and permafrost settings.

The 2 or 3-year fellowships are available to support work towards the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees, or to support a Postdoctoral appointment.  Research during the term of the fellowship can be performed at any federal lab or accredited university in the United States. Application for these awards must be submitted in hard copy.  There are two reviews per year in 2014 with the deadlines of Feburary 1 and August 1.
