            ANN ARBOR, MI & WASHINGTON, DC
 
 
 
WORKPLACE:  The Office of Transportation & Air Quality (OTAQ) in the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is the hub for the development of national policy and emission standards for motor vehicles, engines, and fuels.  The office provides leadership in the nation?s environmental efforts to reduce emissions from passenger cars, trucks, motorcycles, construction and farming equipment, locomotives, aircraft, marine, lawn and garden equipment, and their fuels.  We have a staff of highly creative and dedicated scientists and engineers working on significant programs of national and international scope with direct impact on the public and the environment.  Our goal is to develop effective programs and policies that achieve meaningful reductions in air pollution so the public will benefit from breathing cleaner air.
 
PROGRAMS:  One of the key areas of future work in OTAQ is related to a legislation that was recently passed, the Energy Policy Act of 2005.   This legislation will dramatically change the nation?s fuel programs.  This effort involves identifying and developing clean fuel strategies that influence the direction of national policy for the protection of public health and the environment.  These strategies improve air quality by promoting cleaner technologies, energy efficiency, and energy independence.  OTAQ carries out its mission through regulation, policy, and technology development, guided by the assessment of environmental and economic impacts of options, policy development and analysis, and the demonstration of innovative technologies. 
 
WORK OPPORTUNITIES:  Opportunities exist for those with scientific and engineering backgrounds and strong policy, communication, and interpersonal skills who are interested in becoming a part of the dedicated team of professionals which will lead the way to improving our nation?s air quality by supporting regulatory and technology programs.  As a member of the team, you may have the opportunity to:  
 
C           Develop vehicle, engine, and fuel quality standards/regulations 
C           Assess and evaluate emission control technologies and alternative fuel technologies
C           Evaluate the effects of fuel changes on vehicle performance, vehicle emissions, air quality, and human health
C           Conduct environmental, economic, and benefit assessment of policy/regulatory options (including economic modeling and life-cycle analysis)
C           Evaluate fuel production, distribution, refinery technology and economic issues of conventional and alternative fuels, including renewable fuels (such as biodiesel and ethanol)
C           Assess the impacts of worldwide fuel markets and imports on EPA programs
C           Work with outside private and public sector stakeholders to evaluate, develop, and implement policies/regulations
