The Air Quality Planning and Science Division is seeking a highly motivated individual to supervise the Implementation Section. Situated within the Area Source & Emission Inventory Programs Branch, the Implementation Section is responsible for implementing the Air Resources Board’s (ARB) consumer products regulations and developing innovative control strategies. The consumer products regulatory program is an important part of ARB’s overall effort to reduce the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including toxic air contaminants and greenhouse gases, which are emitted from the use of chemically formulated consumer products. VOCs that are emitted into the air from consumer products and other sources react with other pollutants to form ozone and particulate matter. Reducing VOC emissions from consumer products therefore plays an integral part in ARB’s effort to improve air quality and protect public health and the environment.
The successful candidate will oversee Section staff in: guiding research on VOC emissions and environmental fate; designing and conducting surveys to quantify VOC in products, and updating emission inventories for consumer products; developing regulations; implementing the existing consumer products regulations, including certifications, alternative control plans, and innovative product applications; and coordinating with other ARB programs, divisions, industry, and air districts.
The most competitive candidates will have demonstrated leadership skills in technical analyses and regulatory and policy development, and have a background in chemistry or a closely related field. Excellent writing and communication, organization, and interpersonal skills are essential for this position. The successful candidate should possess: the ability to lead a team in implementing complex regulatory programs; a demonstrated ability to motivate others and foster the desire to be positive, creative, and innovative while working with evolving situations; a broad knowledge of ARB programs and policies; knowledge of the rulemaking process; demonstrated ability to work with industry stakeholders and air districts; and the ability to understand, translate, and summarize complex technical information into clear and concise materials for upper management, stakeholders, and the general public. The successful candidate should also be familiar with the process of taking an item to the Board.
