The vacancy is a Senior Executive Service position as Director of the Health and Environmental Impacts Division (HEID), Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS), Office of Air and Radiation, located in Research Triangle Park, NC.
The HEID develops policies and strategies to protect public health and the environment from the impacts of criteria pollutants and hazardous air pollutants in coordination with other OAQPS divisions. The Division reviews and revises, as appropriate, the national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for the criteria air pollutants. As part of the NAAQS program, the Division manages programs to evaluate the health and ecological effects of criteria pollutants and to assess exposures and risks related to these pollutants.
The Division also supports sector-based regulations and national-scale assessments in the air toxics program by conducting quantitative exposure and risk assessments for toxic air pollutants. The Division conducts economic analysis of the benefits and costs of improving air quality, including developing benefit/cost estimates for numerous regulatory policies and programs, as well as developing innovative economic assessment models and providing economic analytical support to other EPA offices.
The Division promotes efforts to evaluate the linkages between air pollution and climate change and to address international air quality issues such as transboundary air pollution. The incumbent supervises HEID employees located at Research Triangle Park and at the Washington, D.C. office.
