Job Description:
The Climate Action and Research Planning Section has an immediate opening
for a dynamic and motivated staff person to guide research meant to inform
the agency’s air pollution and climate programs. The Section provides an
exciting work environment with highly motivated staff, and serves as an
agency-wide resource for developing the Board’s annual 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, green buildings, advanced clean
cars, and low carbon fuels.

The selected candidate will initially be responsible for developing and
coordinating cutting-edge scientific and technical research to support the
Board’s decision-making related to advanced technology vehicles, low carbon
fuels, and other priority topic areas related to ARB’s climate and air
quality policies and programs. The candidate should be able to guide

public policy, environmental science, economics, climate change, and air
