MS Amlin Academic Advisory Panel / seeking expertise in hydrology, meteorology, geophysics and structural engineering

Published Date

MS Amlin writes significant catastrophe risk across its Marine, Property and Reinsurance classes of business. MS Amlin are looking for experts to join their Academic Advisory Panel. The panel is a new initiative to look at the latest academic research in the area of catastrophe modelling (including exposure, hazard and vulnerability) and offer advice and information to a variety of audiences and through a wide range of channels.  By joining the panel, academics will get the opportunity to share ideas, promote and seek industry funding for joined research projects, and of course generate publicity and exposure for the work of their faculties. 

Due to the impact of variables such as climate change and other geo-political factors, as well as newly emerging risks, the risk landscape is constantly changing. This creates a challenge for risk management and the ability to model possible outcomes, stress test extreme scenarios and inform our view of catastrophe risk, an area which assumes greater importance within the business. Whilst we use commercial catastrophe models to quantify MS Amlin’s catastrophe exposure for pricing and portfolio accumulation, we hope that our Academic Advisory Panel will expand our research and knowledge base in the fields of catastrophe modelling. 

MS Amlin are looking for passionate academic experts (at Senior Researcher to Reader/Professor level), based in the UK or continental Europe, with interest in modelling and in-depth knowledge in each of the following fields: 

1. Seismology: A geo-physicist or seismic engineer to help our scientific understanding around earthquake modelling, such as evaluating latest scientific analysis that has been incorporated by the model vendors. 

2. Hydrology: A hydrologist to support our understanding of flood models, such as the underlying hydraulic/hydrologic modelling techniques and latest scientific and policy developments. 

3. Meteorology: A meteorologist with a broad range of knowledge to advise on wind-related perils, climate change impact and atmospheric science in general. 

4. Engineering: A structural engineer with a deep understanding around the engineering of the built environment to support the scientific analysis of damage functions and business interruption in catastrophe models. 

It is anticipated that the Academic Advisory Panel will meet quarterly at MS Amlin offices in London, starting in February 2018, to provide updates of current research trends and new scientific initiatives (datasets, models etc.) in each of the above areas and to exchange ideas. Expenses will be fully reimbursed. 

If you are interested in being part of MS Amlin’s Academic Advisory Panel, or know of any colleagues who may be, please respond by 14 November 2017 with your CV and a cover note outlining how you anticipate you might contribute to the panel.  Dr Tina Thomson, Research Manager, Underwriting Modelling, MS Amlin, The Leadenhall Building, 122 Leadenhall Street, London EC3V 4AG - This email address is being protected from spambots.
