Job Description and Duties
The mission of the Air Quality and Climate Science Section in Research Division is to advance our understanding of the emerging climate science, design and implement climate change mitigation measures, and develop and apply methods for air quality control strategies including linkages to climate change.  A secondary mission of the Section will lead research efforts to climate science, GHG inventory, and air quality analyses to inform policy direction and advance the health-protection mission of the agency. The Section is seeking a highly motivated individual to join the team responsible to design and implement two mitigation regulations related to Fluorinated gases (F-gas): regulation for small container of automotive refrigerant (e.g., HFC-134a) and SF6 reduction for non-electrical and non-semiconductor sectors.  F-gases are potent greenhouse gases (GHG) so additional control is needed to meet ARB's F-gas reduction plan.
The successful candidate will advance in a timely fashion the development and implementation of the regulations for small containers of automotive refrigerant and SF6 reduction for non-electric and non-semiconductor sectors to meet the emission reduction goals.  This includes the conduct of technical and administrative activities in relation to the regulations.  Demonstrated experience with rule development and implementation, in-depth understanding of F-gas sources, emissions, and mitigation options; close relationships with industry, academics, and government agencies; understanding of scientific and engineering principles are highly desirable.  The position requires close interaction, coordination, and teamwork with a broad range of stakeholders, and conducts research projects, analyses, interpretation of data, preparation of briefing notes and official documents, and information dissemination in support of these measures.
