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 currently has an opening for a modelling position. Suitable candidates would have a PhD in Atmospheric Sciences, Meteorology, Applied Mathematics, Oceanography, Statistics, Hydrology, Wind Engineering, or similar. They would be used to working in a UNIX environment, and used to using a compiled programming language (such as FORTRAN or C). They would have experience with either numerical models (such as GCMs or mesoscale models), handling large data sets, or statistical modeling. 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,

Shree
