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.

In addition to evaluating each candidate's relative ability, as demonstrated by quality and breadth of experience, the following factors will provide the basis for competitively evaluating each candidate: Applicants should be motivated to contribute to the mission of the CARB and have a keen interest in working on the health effects of air pollution. Experience in the health sciences, public health, or a related biological science, and a background in biostatistics are needed. Excellent written and verbal communication skills, the ability to work effectively and cooperatively with a diverse stakeholder group including the public, other government agencies, and research organizations, and strong interpersonal and leadership skills are necessary. The ability to work proactively and efficiently on multiple projects with firm deadlines is expected. The qualified applicant should be a motivated team player with an enthusiastic attitude and the dedication to work on some of the most important issues of our time. The ability to interpret the health and statistical significance of research findings is required. Familiarity with methods and protocols employed to evaluate how air pollution impacts people and communities is helpful. Experience in health and exposure assessments, environmental physiology, epidemiology, and GIS are also helpful, but not required.

Organization Description: The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is charged with protecting the public from the harmful effects of air pollution and developing programs and actions to fight climate change. From requirements for clean cars and fuels to adopting innovative solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, California has pioneered a range of effective approaches that have set the standard for effective air and climate programs for the nation, and the world.
