Staff will also be expected to manage extramural research projects, publish research findings, and build strategic research partnerships with national and international stakeholders.


The most competitive candidate will have an advanced degree in engineering or other scientific disciplines, and detailed knowledge of air pollution and climate change science, emission behavior of air pollution sources, and a broad understanding of ARB programs. The candidate should have the ability to analyze technical data, develop solutions and present technical information in a clear, concise, and logically organized manner. Expertise in statistical analysis and database applications skills for managing and analyzing large-scale datasets is highly desirable. Critical thinking skills, excellent written and verbal communication skills, and the ability to set and meet deadlines are essential for this job.
