Please note that applicants must be on the list of qualified Air Pollution
Specialist candidates, more details on how to get on the list are here:

Salary: $4,204.00 - $8,136.00
Posted: 01/26/2015
Job Description: http://jobs.spb.ca.gov/wvpos/more_info.cfm?recno=595945
and pasted below.


The Climate Action and Research Planning Section has an immediate opening
for a motivated staff person to lead the agency’s Sustainable Communities
research program. The Section is an agency-wide resource for developing the
Board’s research plan, develops tools and guidance for local governments,
small businesses, and others to help California meet its climate goals, and
performs and guides novel research on sustainable communities and green
buildings in support of Senate Bill (SB) 375.

The selected candidate will be responsible for developing and coordinating
cutting-edge scientific and technical research to support the Board’s
decision-making related to land use and transportation. The candidate
should be familiar with relevant state policies (e.g., SB 375), local and
regional land use planning, and cognizant of the complexities of land use,
particularly smart growth, including its relationship to the environment,
its reliance on human behavior, and impacts on air quality. The incumbent
will be responsible for assessing, developing, and improving tools,
resources and other strategies to support the Air Resources Board’s
policies to reduce emissions from land use and transportation, and must be
committed to working closely with other ARB staff, metropolitan planning
organizations, local governments, and other stakeholders to ensure that the
tools and research are targeted and effective. The incumbent will
contribute significantly to the development of innovative climate change
tools and strategies for use by consumers, businesses, and the public and
will be responsible for evaluating the efficacy of existing strategies and
developing methods to measure and track associated greenhouse gas emissions
reductions. This position requires coordination with academia, government,
and other environmental organizations to keep ARB apprised of the current
state of research in these areas, and the candidate should be comfortable
making presentations and communicating the section’s objectives to
nontechnical persons.


The selected individual is expected to contribute significantly to the
climate change responsibilities of the Section. The most competitive
candidates will have a strong educational background in land use and
transportation planning, sustainable communities, public policy,
environmental science, climate change, and air quality. Desirable
qualifications include: strong written and verbal communication skills, the
ability to work as part of a team and independently, strong organizational
skills, aptitude to develop and present written and verbal reports to
stakeholders, and the ability to work effectively with industry, government
agencies, and the public. The selected candidate must be a team player with
a positive attitude, dedication, and a desire to make original and
sustained contributions to ARB.


Qualified Air Resources Engineer candidates will be considered. All
applications 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
