The Transportation Department of the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) is seeking an entry- or mid-level Air Quality Planner to assist with the creation and implementation of strategies to advance adoption of zero-emission vehicles (e.g. electric vehicles [EVs] and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles [FCEVs]) and other alternative fuel vehicles in the North Central Texas Region, in conjunction with activities carried out as the Dallas-Fort Worth Clean Cities Coalition (www.dfwcleancities.org). The successful candidate should have an interest in reducing the environmental impacts of transportation through use of alternative fuel vehicles, with emphasis on zero-emission vehicles. This position will also support major DFW Clean Cities activities including planning for the development of alternative fueling infrastructure, guiding local governments toward implementation of best practices to support adoption of alternative fuel vehicles, providing support to fleets in transitioning away from conventional fuels, and working with stakeholders to provide EV information to the general public. Near-term work will be closely associated with Electric Vehicles North Texas (www.dfwcleancities.org/evnt) and may include evaluation of how increased alternative fuel use interacts with the electric grid and other energy systems. Work is collaborative in nature, working not only within the NCTCOG team, but also with external stakeholders, including fleets, citizen groups, associations, and industry representatives. Applicants wishing to be considered for this position should apply online at https://www.nctcog.org/Careers. To be considered for any other NCTCOG position that may currently be open, applicants need to apply online separately for those postings. All submittals should include a cover letter summarizing relevant work experience as well as a current resume.
