Modelling strategies to lessen geopolitical or logistical stresses on businesses

This is an excellent opportunity to join an exciting and growing start-up to develop your career in financial forecasting and probability modelling. If you are interested in mathematics, economics and how geopolitical or logistical issues might affect the success of businesses, you might enjoy helping them form new strategies to get the best outcomes for their continued success.

You will be a creative modeller with good software skills (preferably in Python) and will be keen to join and contribute to their dynamic team of forecasters and researchers.

You will need:

  • A good degree (2.1 or above) or PhD from a well-respected university in a technical subject such as Computer Science, Physics, Maths or Economics
  • Established skills in modelling languages, preferably Python, but MATLAB, R, SQL, C++ and Excel VBA would also be considered
  • The ability to thrive in a team and to independently manage your time effectively in a rapidly changing environment
  • Excellent communication skills; able to break down complex scientific theories for non-specialists

Your application will be enhanced if you also have some of the following:

  • Previous experience with risk modelling or scenario development
  • Skills in GIS systems, such as Quantum GIS, GeoPy or Spatial SQL
