New Zealand is a very active geological environment within which GNS 
Science (www.gns.cri.nz) is the leading supplier of research and 
consultancy services of earth science and geological hazard engineering. 

The Risk and Society Department within the Natural Hazards Group of GNS 
Science is a 20 strong team of hazard and risk modellers, engineers, and 
social science researchers. Our work focuses on understanding societal 
risk and the development of tools and decision support systems to help 
communities understand, manage, and where practical, mitigate their risk 
from natural hazards.

We are seeking to appoint a risk specialist to enhance research 
capabilities in risk assessment and risk modelling.  The successful 
applicant will be involved at the leading edge of the development and 
application of tools that enable better understanding of New Zealand's 
built environment and the risks imposed upon it by natural hazards. In 
particular, this will involve the integration of a suite of natural hazard 
models with a national inventory database and associated vulnerability 
database so as to establish the geographic distribution of risks on 
buildings and infrastructure within New Zealand, and within the 
Asia/Pacific region.

We are after a motivated and innovative person to join our high 
performance team. The successful applicant will have a post-graduate 
degree (Masters or PhD or equivalent), preferably with 3 years or more 
experience in engineering research or consultancy. An understanding of 
loss modelling, impact evaluation, and database management and application 
specifically in a risk evaluation environment is desirable. Commercial 
experience, statistics and demonstrable computer programming skills, 
together with an understanding of the NZ construction environment would be 
an advantage.

Application closing date: Oct 24 2014
