The Research Division utilizes and develops the highest quality scientific information and technologies to best protect the health of the people and the environment of California from the effects of air pollutants and greenhouse gases. The Greenhouse Gas Technology and Field Testing Section is in the Research Planning and Emission Mitigation Branch and conducts field studies and other activities to support the Air Resources Board’s (ARB) regulatory programs. It plays a critical role in implementing the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB 32) with responsibilities for greenhouse gas emission inventory evaluation, regulations to reduce the use of SF6, and technology advancement. The Section has developed and deployed three mobile monitoring platforms to characterize community exposures to air pollutants, as well as other monitoring tools including a novel pilot methane monitoring network to verify and validate California’s greenhouse gas emission sources. These tools will help to inform decision-makers on where exposures of greatest concern occur as well as opportunities for mitigation, and may also help to reveal or identify significant local sources of greenhouse gases. Additional field work focuses on quantifying the real world benefit of ARB rules, such as the Drayage and Truck and Bus Rules. The Section develops and conducts innovative in-field research studies and technical analyses in response to policy goals, provides expert opinions to decision-makers, networks with national and international stakeholders, and publishes research findings.
The most desirable qualifications include an advanced degree in engineering or other scientific discipline (Ph.D. preferred), demonstrated excellent organizational, communication, and interpersonal skills and the ability to effectively manage highly-skilled and self-motivated staff. The candidate will need a strong scientific and technical background with the experience and ability to design field studies, direct data analyses, and get research published; the ability to set and meet deadlines; a broad knowledge of ARB programs and policies, for both air quality and global warming; and the ability to effectively interact with all levels of staff within the Division and across ARB, other governmental agencies, academia, industry, and other public stakeholders. The successful candidate should be able to use these skills and knowledge to champion the ongoing work in the Section and guide the direction of the Section to develop policy relevant research that addresses ARB needs.
