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 and freshwater floods. 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 3 different roles: 1) A position in our event response team. This team develops, tests and applies processes and procedures that allow us to produce real-time information about natural catastrophes and the damage they have caused. Much of the work is related to hurricanes, but also includes other perils such as winterstorms, floods and convective storms. There can be significant overtime when there are major hurricanes. This role would be appropriate for someone with a Masters or PhD, with a particular interest in the topic of real-time response to natural disasters. 2) A position in our wind modelling team. This team researches and develops risk models for tropical storms, winter storms and convective storms. Ideal candidates would have a PhD and/or research experience in meteorology, climate research, or related topic. 3) A position in our storm surge modelling team. This team researches and develops risk models for storm surges caused by tropical storms or winter storms. Ideal candidates would have a PhD and/or research experience in coastal oceanography, or related topic. In all cases strong candidates with different but equivalent profiles may also be considered. Previous experience in catastrophe modeling is not necessary. If you are interested, please send an email, with a single attachment containing a covering letter and CV, to email@example.com, with the word 'event response', 'wind', or 'surge' in the title. Appropriate candidates will be invited for interview in London. Many thanks, Steve
