Risk Management Solutions (RMS) is the world's leading provider of mathematical 
models and information related to the financial impact of natural catastrophes. 
We have a team of fifty PhD scientists and engineers based in London building 
mathematical models that predict the distributions of possible damage due to 
the effects of tropical storms, extra-tropical storms, thunderstorms, 
storm-surges, freshwater floods and tsunamis. We use a combination of observed 
data, reanalysis data, numerical, statistical and engineering models and data 
assimilation. We are the pioneers in the development and application of complex 
statistical and numerical modelling methods for the quantification of natural 
hazard risk, and our risk models are the most detailed and comprehensive models 
of natural catastrophes produced anywhere in the world. Our clients include 
several hundred insurance and reinsurance companies as well as brokers, banks, 
hedge funds, regional and local governments, and multilateral agencies. 
 
We are currently trying to fill a 10-week summer internship position in our 
modelling team, to work on quantifying variations in European winter storms, 
hurricanes and their impact on insurance losses. Suitable candidates would 
already have, or be half way through, a PhD in Atmospheric Sciences, 
Meteorology, Oceanography, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, Wind Engineering, 
or similar. They would be used to programming in a UNIX or Linux environment. 
Strong candidates with a different but equivalent profile would also be 
considered. Previous experience in catastrophe modeling, or specific expertise 
in modelling natural hazards, is not necessary.
 
If you are interested, please send an email, with a covering letter and CV, to 
london.recruiting@rms.com. Appropriate candidates will be invited for interview 
in London.
 
Many thanks,
 
Steve
