Position: PhD position on financial engineering solutions to keep extreme weather risk insurable
Institution: University of Twente
Location: Enschede, Overijssel, Netherlands
Duties: Extreme weather events are anticipated to become more frequent and more severe due to climate change. This poses a challenge to both insurers and policyholders, who can expect larger losses and higher premiums. The key question is whether the risk will remain insurable in the future. This PhD project focuses on the role of financial products in the management of climate change risks. The ultimate aim of this project is to show how financial products (either new or existing ones) can be used to safeguard the insurability of extreme weather risk. Are you interested in developing and pricing financial products for climate change risk management? Then this position may just be the one for you!
Requirements: A MSc degree in a relevant field, such as financial engineering, actuarial science, mathematics, or econometrics; Confirmed skills for modeling, programming, and handling large data sets; Dedicated teammate in a hardworking group of scientists; Excellent communication skills and proficient in written and oral English
