Senior Lead Research Scientist Hydrologic\Hydrodynamic Modeling, NORWOOD, MA, US
FM Global is a leading property insurer of the world's largest businesses, providing more than one-third of FORTUNE 1000-size companies with engineering-based risk management and property insurance solutions. FM Global helps clients maintain continuity in their business operations by drawing upon state-of-the-art loss-prevention engineering and research; risk management skills and support services; tailored risk transfer capabilities; and superior financial strength. To do so, we rely on a dynamic, culturally diverse group of employees, working in more than 100 countries, in a variety of challenging roles.
 
FM Global Research is the driving force behind our property loss-prevention engineering and understanding of the hazards our clients face. FM Global has been the leader in property loss-prevention research for more than 175 years.
 
As part of our research department, you’ll work alongside other researchers and independently to understand emerging property loss-prevention hazards, quantify real-world scenarios, and develop new ways to protect against today’s property-loss threats. You’ll also work on implementation, evaluation, and development of techniques—including computer models and experiments—and present your findings to make strategic and beneficial advancements in risk mitigation.

The person in this position will be responsible for planning and conducting research regarding hydrologic and hydrodynamic modeling of flood, and subsequent property losses.
He or she will be responsible for the evaluation, implementation and development of techniques, computer models or experiments related to property loss. Other responsibilities involve analyzing data, including the development of new techniques to identify trends in intensity, frequency and other relevant attributes; preparing reports and presentations that describe the results of studies completed or in progress, the relevance of the results for loss prevention and risk management, and development and implementation of prevention and mitigation techniques; development of plans for strategic research that will lead to measurable, significant improvements in the ability to estimate future property loss.
