Flood Modeler (Hydrology), NEWARK, CA, US
The RMS model development team boasts the best scientists building mathematical models that predict the distributions of possible damage due to the effects of tropical storms, extra-tropical storms, thunderstorms, storm-surges and fluvial floods, using a combination of observed data, reanalysis data, numerical and statistical models and data assimilation.   
 
RMS is the pioneer the development and application of complex statistical and numerical modeling methods for the quantification of natural hazard risk. RMS'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. 

The Flood team focuses on developing high-resolution, large-scale flood models which are used to assess flood risk. The modeling work carried out by the flood team encompasses all steps from hazard modeling to loss modeling. The department has an engaged, collaborative working environment within clear scientific, motivated and technological culture.
