      Subject: 2 job openings at ICCT

      ICCT currently has two openings: a policy analyst position in the DC
      office, supporting the low carbon fuel program; and a staff scientist
      in the San Francisco office, supporting fuel efficiency, clean fuels,
      and city-based climate programs.

      International Council on Clean Transportation
      The International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) is a
      nonprofit organization whose purpose is to dramatically reduce
      conventional pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions from personal,
      public and goods transportation in order to improve air quality and
      human health, and mitigate climate change. The Council is made up of
      leading government regulators and experts from around the word that
      participate as individuals based on their experience with air quality
      and transportation issues. The ICCT promotes best practices and
      comprehensive solutions to improve vehicle emissions and efficiency,
      increase fuel quality and sustainability of alternative fuels, reduce
      pollution from the in-use fleet, and curtail emissions from
      international goods movement. The ICCT has offices in Washington DC
      and San Francisco California. For more information, visit
      www.theicct.org.


      Staff Scientist, San Francisco, CA

      We have an immediate opening for a staff scientist in the San
      Francisco office to support ICCT programs addressing global climate
      change and urban air pollution problems. This position will work
      closely with the Research Director in coordinating efforts to support
      the Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI) initially in Latin America,
      including Bogota, Mexico City, and Sao Paulo. Later this year, we may
      also begin CCI efforts in Asia. The position will require travel to
      project cities, likely to be in the range of four to eight trips of
      one to three weeks per year. Topics covered by projects include fuel
      economy, low carbon fuels, cleaner fuels and improved emissions
      standards for new vehicles, inspection and maintenance for the
      existing fleet, and improved tax and incentive programs. Other
      project areas could include international marine, heavy-duty truck
      emission standards, and greenhouse gas and fuel economy standards for
      light and heavy-duty vehicles.


      Tasks will include: researching current policies and strategies;
      assisting in proposing and evaluating policy options, including both
      qualitative and quantitative analysis; helping arrange for and
      provide technical assistance for implementation; providing technical
      support to local partners; writing progress reports, policy briefs,
      and technical reports; and helping to organize workshops and give
      presentations to educate policy-makers and journalists.

      Qualifications:  The ideal candidate will have a strong policy and
      technical background, most likely with a master’s degree in
      environmental science, engineering, energy and resources, economics,
      or public policy. It is necessary to have a strong background and
      interest in climate change mitigation and reduction of conventional
      urban air pollution from the transportation sector. Successful
      candidates are likely to have international experience, including
      work, study, or significant travels, or experience working closely
      with international partners. Fluency in another language is highly
      desirable, especially Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, or Japanese.

      Other requirements include: excellent written and verbal
      communications skills; strong quantitative, analytic, and research
      skills; highly organized and self-directed; creative and strategic in
      problem-solving and identifying policy needs; ability to accurately
      and concisely summarize complex information for a broad range of
      audiences; excel spreadsheet modeling and experience working with
      other modeling systems; at least 3+ years of relevant work experience
      with a government, an environmental or consulting organization, or a
      development agency.

      Job details:  Salary will be competitive and commensurate with
      experience and a generous benefits package is provided. The position
      is located in downtown San Francisco, very convenient to public
      transportation.

      Please send a resume, cover letter summarizing your interests and
      qualifications, a writing sample, name and contact information of
      three references (letters not necessary), and salary expectations to
      Kate Blumberg (kate@...).

      Policy Analyst, Washington DC

      We have an immediate opening for a policy analyst at the Washington
      DC office. The primary focus of this new position will be to work
      with the Executive Director  â€“ as well as government officials,
      consultants and academics from Europe, Brazil, California and the
      United States – to develop new international policies for biofuels
      and other low carbon transportation fuels.  Most of this work will
      focus on supporting the development of a new policy called a Low
      Carbon Fuel Standard that was announced last month in California and
      Europe. Tasks will include reviewing and evaluating certification
      protocols for biofuels and all transportation fuels, evaluating,
      comparing and modifying lifecycle fuel models, and assisting in the
      development of a series of policy-relevant technical papers. Related
      activities are likely to include helping to organize a series of
      international workshops in Europe, Asia and Brazil, and coordinate
      information sharing among experts around the world. Other projects
      may include support to other project managers on topics including
      international marine, heavy-duty truck emission standards, and
      greenhouse gas and fuel economy standards for light and heavy-duty
      vehicles.

      Qualifications: strong quantitative, analytic, research and writing
      skills; ability to think and write creatively about environmental
      policy challenges and potential solutions; and the ability to
      accurately and concisely summarize complex information for a broad
      range of audiences. The applicant should have a undergraduate or
      master’s degree in engineering, economics or a related field.  Work
      experience on transportation or air quality issues is a plus.

      experience and a generous benefits package is provided. The position
      is located in Washington DC.
