Job Description and Duties
The primary role of the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Strategy Section (GHGRSS) in the Research Division of ARB is to focus on implementing mitigation strategies identified in the scoping plan and developing new strategies identified in the short lived climate pollutant plan to meet the legislatively mandated goals of Assembly Bill 32 and Senate Bill 1383 respectively.  The section is responsible for developing regulatory and non-regulatory measures to address some of the most potent Greenhouse Gases (GHG) such as the chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) used in a variety of applications such as refrigeration and air-conditioning (R/AC) and insulation foams. In addition, the section leads research efforts to inventory, determine lifecycle impacts, and evaluate the feasibility of low global warming alternates in various end use applications.
The successful candidate will join a strong team of professionals to advance the implementation of the Stationary Source Refrigerant Management Program, a regulation to reduce emissions of high-global warming refrigerants from refrigeration systems and will work closely with industry stakeholders, engineers, facility owners and service providers in the industry to develop a better understanding of refrigerant emissions and mitigating factors. The successful candidate will conduct highly focused technical and scientific evaluations to identify and prioritize sources of refrigerant emissions and evaluate the technical feasibility of alternate R/AC technologies.  The successful candidate will serve as a staff lead to conduct engineering, technical, and administrative tasks related to research efforts and implementation of new high-global warming HFC reduction measures. The incumbent is expected to have an ability to communicate effectively on a technical and policy level, both verbally and in writing, with a wide variety of stakeholders including other CARB Divisions, government agencies, policymakers, industry, environmental organizations, and the public. Some travel is required.
