Job Description:


The Chief of the Air Quality Planning Branch oversees the efforts of four sections who work with many divisions throughout the ARB, as well as air districts and public and private stakeholder groups to integrate state-of-the-science air quality analysis with federal planning requirements. In carrying out this mission, the Branch:

  • Evaluates data to provide an improved understanding of air quality throughout the State, including assessing meteorological influences, trends, and the impacts of ARB’s control programs.
  • Leads planning efforts to attain the federal air quality standards in the San Joaquin Valley and the South Coast air basins.
  • Displays and distributes both historical and real-time air quality data.

    This position will provide an opportunity to guide the comprehesive development of new State Implementation Plans (SIPs) due in 2015 to meet more stringent federal ozone and PM2.5 standards. This effort will require coordination amongst many aspects of ARB’s programs, including air quality analysis, modeling, emissions inventory, and strategy development. The Branch will also be at the forefront of developing innovative new methods to understand the nature of the air quality problem in key regions of the State and using that to inform strategy development and communicate air quality progress and challenges to the public.


    The candidate should have strong verbal and written communication skills and demonstrate an ability to effectively oversee SIP efforts that require coordination and integration of many different programs within the organization. The successful candidate must have the ability to bridge knowledge of air quality with strategic thinking on how that information can be used to guide and inform future attainment strategies. The candidate should also be able to translate complex technical information into concepts and key messages that can be understood by policy makers and the public and be able to effectively work with air districts and outside stakeholders. Please indicate position number 673-750-3763-00 on your application and include a copy of your degrees and/or transcripts.
