Job Description:


The Atmospheric Modeling and Support Section of the Air Quality Planning
and Science Division has an open position for an Air Resources Engineer who
will be assigned a variety of the following types of responsibilities : 1)
Apply the Sparse Matrix Operator Kernel Emissions (SMOKE) Modeling System
for processing California’s emissions inventory to produce, generally
assess, and provide quality assurance of emission inputs and supporting
data used for air quality models; 2) assess, test, and improve emission
model components; 3) conduct GIS-based analyses using emissions,
meteorological, and air quality data; and 4) summarize and present project
results or technical findings to all levels of management.

The section is responsible for preparing spatially, temporally, and
size-resolved emission inventories, as well as conducting air quality
modeling studies and providing technical support using sound science for
statewide regulatory and policy programs. The section works with and
supports a broad range of internal and external scientists, engineers, and
policymakers. The section is comprised of engineers and scientists who use
state-of-science computer models, computer systems, and computer software
(including programming and scripting with application/development
software). The duties of the section broadly fall into the following areas:
1) the development of quality-assured gridded emission inventories for air
quality modeling; 2) coordination with other sections and air quality
districts on the development of emission targets for State Implementation
Plans; and 3) development of metrics and procedures to assess the emission
inventories and input parameters for meteorological and air quality models.


Due to the needs of the section that are associated with this specific
position, the most competitive applicant will have: 1) a strong science or
engineering background; 2) excellent communication skills (both verbal and
written); 3) experience with Linux or Unix operative systems, including
shell scripting; 4) recent hands-on programming experience; and 5) a
demonstrated ability to work with large datasets. Additionally, all
candidates must be enthusiastic team players with strong interpersonal
skills. Some or all of the required qualifications listed above may be
tested via a written exam prior to oral interviews.

Although it is not required, it is highly desirable that candidates will
also possess some combination of the following knowledge, skills, or
abilities: hands-on experience preparing inputs for air quality or
emissions models; knowledge of the emission input needs of photochemical
and/or aerosol models; experience with data analysis and tools that can be
used to quality assure very large datasets; previous experience writing
command line executable scripts with Python, Perl, SQL database languages,
or R; and familiarity with GIS software.


Air Pollution Specialists and qualified candidates in other classifications
are encouraged to apply.

Applicants will be screened and only the most qualified candidates will be
interviewed. This vacancy may be subject to SROA/Surplus provisions.
Surplus applicants must attach a copy of their surplus letter with a
completed standard State application (STD 678). On page one of your State
