** Internships at RMS **

 

Risk Management Solutions (RMS) is the world's leading provider of information related to the financial impact of natural catastrophes. RMS has ~500 employees, and provides services to hundreds of insurers, reinsurers and banks around the world. We have a team of 35 scientists in London building mathematical models that predict the distributions of possible damage due to hurricanes, typhoons, severe extra-tropical storms, tornados and floods. We use a combination of observed data, reanalysis data, statistical models and numerical models. 

 

We have a number of internship positions at our offices in London. There are a various possible projects, related to hurricanes, extra-tropical cyclones, floods and storm-surge. The ideal candidate would (a) have a strong background in physics, applied mathematics or statistics, (b) be just starting, be working on, or have just finished, a Doctorate in oceanic or atmospheric science, or related discipline and (c) have strong computing experience, including programming. Strong candidates with a different profile or background would also be considered. We accept applications from anywhere in the world and in previous years have employed interns from e.g. the US, Canada, Germany, Italy and the UK.

 

The internships are paid a reasonable hourly rate, involve full-time work 5 days per week in our offices in central London, and typically last around 3 months. Start and end dates and precise duration are negotiable.

 

To submit an application, please email a CV and covering letter to london.recruiting@rms.com with the title 'summer 2011 internships'.

 

thanks,

 

Steve
