Job Description


Join the Atmospheric Perils Team in AIRs Boston-based Research Department and contribute to the development catastrophe models and probabilistic representation of atmospheric extreme events. Research projects offers opportunities for creative problem-solving on a boundless set of interesting statistical problems at the interface of extreme weather, climate change, and risk. Catastrophe models depend fundamentally on hierarchical modeling of space-time physical processes, inference from heterogeneous and incomplete calibration data, and use of ensemble techniques to quantify uncertainties. We learn continuously through interdisciplinary collaborations with a diverse team of meteorologists, applied mathematicians, climate scientists, engineers, and hydrologists. In addition to possessing sharp technical skills, we also hope you will bring a practical, applied mindset to the role. Our teams work contributes toward building tools that enable the (re)insurance sector to make sound decisions to enhance social resilience to natural catastrophes.


* Work with domain-area experts in meteorology, hydrology, and engineering to interpret observations and numerical simulations to generate statistical models of extreme events.

* Aid in the interpretation and maintenance of existing extreme event models.

* Develop innovative strategies in data analytics, workflows, and model formulation to accelerate production of the next generation of models and products.

* Analyze and validate AIRs extreme event catalog with recent observational data.

* Contribute to identification, inference, and modeling of significant non-stationarities within observational data, including those that may be due to climate change.

* Help formulate answers to client questions related to the statistical aspects of AIRs extreme event models.
