Dear Colleagues,

I would like to announce a second vacancy in my section at the California Air Resources Board (CARB) in Sacramento.  This section is responsible for developing CARB’s EMFAC emissions model.  EMFAC is the official model for estimating current and future on-road mobile source air pollutant emissions in California and is used to support transportation and air quality planning, photochemical modeling, and regulations.  The incumbent will be responsible for mining, analyzing, and quality assuring mobile source data in order to develop emission inventories using defensible, well documented methodologies. Candidates with experience in relational databases and programming languages such as Python and SQL are especially desirable.  As this position will be responsible for coordinating with other staff and stakeholders to shape the future development of the EMFAC model, communication skills and the ability to work in a team are critical.
