About The Job

What you'll spend your time doing:
  • Lead projects to validate catastrophe models, including designing testing plans, undertaking scientific tests, producing required regulatory documentation, and communicating the results to both internal and external stakeholders.
  • Assist the Head of Catastrophe Research on the development of MS Amlin's View of Risk, including the development of model adjustments where required.
  • Undertake innovative research projects to assist with MS Amlin's understanding and management of catastrophe risk (e.g. climate change, counterfactual analysis).
  • Produce catastrophe risk governance documentation and research briefings.
  • Provide catastrophe risk, natural and man-made hazard expertise to internal stakeholders as required (e.g. underwriters, exposure management, catastrophe modellers).
  • Represent MS Amlin at external events (e.g. conferences) and committees (e.g. lighthill risk network), through participation in round tables, forums, and presentations.
  • Follow the latest industry trends and new developments in natural hazards research.

What you'll need:
  • Demonstrable research experience (Masters or PhD preferred) in a relevant field (e.g. meteorology, hydrology, seismology, vulnerability or similar).
  • Proficiency in oral and written communication, particularly the ability to communicate complex scientific ideas to a non-technical audience.
  • Strong analytical and quantitative skills, including experience of working with large data sets and using programming packages such as R, Python and ArcGIS.
  • Ability to think critically in order to form scientific and business judgements.
  • Ability to manage projects and meet deadlines.
  • Prior experience of using and/or validating catastrophe models (e.g. Moody's RMS, Verisk) is desirable.
  • Prior experience of building natural hazard models in the insurance industry or academia is desirable.

You're going to enjoy this job if you also...
  • Enjoy independent research and problem solving
  • Want to work with a market-leading analytics team
  • Have an interest in coding (e.g. R, Python)
  • Can explain complex scientific ideas in simple terms

What you can expect from us:

A competitive salary and benefits package is a given, but you can also expect:
  • A great team and supportive colleagues.
  • An open mind (especially to new ideas and ways of doing things).
  • A strong focus on diversity, inclusion and equal opportunities.
  • A programme of wellbeing and mental health support.
  • Employer-supported volunteering (ESV).
  • Continuous learning.
  • Study support.
  • Structured career development.
