Transportation Fuels Decarbonization Specialist

The California Air Resources Board is seeking motivated and experienced applicants to work on a flagship greenhouse gas reduction program—the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS). We are seeking an Air Pollution Specialist (APS) to function as the staff policy lead for the program. This position is part of a team involved in policy and technical areas of the program including: leading regulatory changes, analyzing alternative fuel trends, designing provisions to better promote alternative fuels and zero emission vehicle (ZEV) deployment, investigating the economics of alternative fuel production technologies, consideration of equity, assessing the supply and demand of the LCFS credit market, and monitoring the LCFS credit market to deter and detect manipulation.

As an Air Pollution Specialist, you will conduct economic and environmental analysis of low carbon transportation technologies and fuels-related policies; analyze and report on LCFS fuels and credit market performance data; analyze transportation policies in the context of California’s long-term climate goals; analyze fuel supply and demand in California; review applications submitted under ZEV infrastructure provisions and evaluate ZEV projects; evaluate fuel markets outside of California for how they may affect the LCFS; and provide policy recommendations to improve the LCFS program. You will work independently and with team members and communicate regularly with stakeholders and other interest groups.

Applying electronically via CalCareers is highly recommended. If submitting a hardcopy application (mail/drop-off), please email to confirm submission.
