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.

RMS is currently trying to fill a role related to the modelling of storm-surge, waves, overtopping and coastal flooding in various parts of the world. Ideal candidates would have a PhD or research experience related to storm-surge or other aspects of coastal ocean modelling. Strong candidates with a different but equivalent profile may also be considered. Previous experience in catastrophe modeling 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,

Shree
