Hydrologist / Hydraulic Engineer - Internship (F/M) - PAR...

Votre rôle et vos missions

AXA Climate is looking for an Intern with an entrepreneurial mindset and with background in hydraulic engineering or hydrology, in order to reinforce the growing Flood team. The main mission of the candidate will be supporting the team to deliver flood projects to help clients of the public and the private sector to gain resilience against flood risk. Key accountabilities:

  • Flood risk assessments: Carry out quantitative and qualitative flood risk assessments at specific areas of interest (main focus on urban areas), that include the following tasks:
    • Hazard assessment: Set up and calibrate/validate flood models to simulate different flood scenarios based on current and future conditions (based on different climate projections), in order to quantify the pluvial and fluvial flood hazard at present and in future time horizons. 
    • Exposure and vulnerability assessment: Characterize the assets exposed to floods and estimate damage functions based on their features.
    • Risk assessment: Combine hazard, exposure and vulnerability to evaluate the (monetized) flood risk at present and in future time horizons.
  • Feasibility studies: Propose different flood mitigation measures and assess the benefit (reduction of risk) and cost of implementing such measures, based on the recalculation of the flood risk once the measures are implemented in the flood models.

To carry out these missions, the candidate will use computational hydraulics software (such as HEC-RAS and Delft3D), geospatial analysis software (QGIS) and programming languages (Python and/or R), under the guidance of other team members.

This can be a great opportunity for the candidate to potentiate such skills.
