              Campus/College Information:

              Founded in 1856, University of Maryland, College Park is the state’s flagship institution. Our 1,250-acre College Park campus is just minutes away from Washington, D.C., and the nexus of the nation’s legislative, executive, and judicial centers of power. This unique proximity to business and technology leaders, federal departments and agencies, and a myriad of research entities, embassies, think tanks, cultural centers, and non-profit organizations is simply unparalleled. Synergistic opportunities for our faculty and students abound and are virtually limitless in the nation’s capital and surrounding areas. The University is committed to attracting and retaining outstanding and diverse faculty and staff that will enhance our stature of preeminence in our three missions of teaching, scholarship, and full engagement in our community, the state of Maryland, and in the world.

              Position Summary/Purpose of Position:

              A postdoctoral researcher is sought to assist in research activities focusing on understanding the impacts of the quantitative frameworks used to probabilistically assess natural hazards on (re)insurance markets and policies. Probabilistic assessments of natural hazards serve as the starting point for risk assessments and subsequent risk-informed decisions. The quantitative assessment frameworks used for various natural hazard groups (e.g., coastal, fire, seismic, precipitation, and inland flooding hazards) have been developed and researched in relative isolation, leading to significant differences in the way in which the respective hazard assessments are performed.
              Initially, this project will focus on (1) examining the fundamental conceptual and practical differences in frameworks used to assess a range of natural hazards, and (2) exploring and quantifying how these differences are the result of or have led to differences in regulatory risk tolerances and (re)insurance markets. This project will also identify opportunities to learn and transfer knowledge across natural hazards-centric engineering, policy, and actuarial disciplines with the goal of improving and bringing consistency across hazards.

              Minimum Qualifications:

              Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering, Data Analytics, Geo-Sciences, Risk Analysis, or a related field, and have a promising record of research, publications, and strong communication skills. Successful candidates will, at minimum, have a strong background in applications of probability, statistics, and data analytics; experience processing and managing data sets; as well as experience or interest in working at the intersection of engineering and policy. Ideally, a successful candidate will have knowledge/experience working with multiple hazard types as well as an understanding of (re)insurance markets and associated federal, state, or local policies. The candidate must have the ability to work independently to achieve project objectives, meet project deadlines and reporting requirements, and help mentor other group members, including undergraduates.
