Job Description and Duties

This is a unique opportunity to join the newly formed Community Air Protection Program, established to implement AB 617.  The Program is focused on reducing air pollution exposure in California's most impacted communities.

The Community Assessment Section is responsible for informing community-scale air pollution control efforts under AB 617 based on assessments of and integrated findings from air quality monitoring, emissions inventory, air quality modeling, and other sources of information linked to community-scale pollution burdens. Section staff works collaboratively with staff across CARB divisions and with a wide range of stakeholders, including air district staff, community groups, industry, and other technical experts in local, state, federal, or international government agencies to address multiple AB 617 requirements. Some of these requirements include informing CARB's statewide strategy to reduce community-scale air pollution and the selection of communities within which air districts must deploy air quality monitoring or conduct community emission reduction programs.  Section staff will also work with air district staff, other CARB staff, and other stakeholders on reviewing and evaluating results from these efforts within communities once they are implemented.

Under the supervision of the Air Resources Supervisor I, the ARE will assist in the development and refinement of criteria for AB 617 community assessment, identification and selection. This may involve identifying technical tools to model community-scale air quality, recommending or producing input data for use in these tools and models, analyzing output data or other data streams for use in prioritizing the most impacted communities statewide, and recommending or participating in updates to relevant data streams, such as CARB's criteria or toxics emissions inventories.

In support of AB 617 Community Emission Reduction Programs, the ARE will be heavily involved with projects that improve our understanding of how emission sources affect community air quality. To fulfill this task, the ARE will recommend, implement, oversee, review, or develop methodologies to perform source apportionment for both stationary as well as mobile sources. This will require having up to date source apportionment experience or similar experience in a related field that will allow them to get up to speed quickly on implementing or reviewing source apportionment techniques (e.g., inventory ratios, back trajectory analyses, air quality modeling, source apportionment models, etc.).

Occasional overnight travel may be required.
