Job Description and Duties

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is seeking an individual with expertise in the health impacts of air pollution exposure or expertise in a related health science, a strong background in statistical analysis, and a desire to work in a nationally and internationally recognized air pollution control agency. The CARB's mission is to promote and protect California's public health, welfare, and ecological resources by reducing air pollution while recognizing and considering the effects on the state's economy. Some of the CARB's highest priorities are examining how air pollutants, climate change, and public policy impact public health.

The successful candidate will work with a diverse team of CARB scientists on in-house studies and extramural research that helps to provide the information used as the basis of many of CARB's air pollution and climate change regulatory activities.

Additionally, the successful candidate will investigate ways that sustainable community design can affect air pollution exposures and public health. Effective communication of health research results to management, the general public, local air districts, and Members of the Board is an essential component of this position.
