We propose a challenging and rewarding post of scientific officer to play a decisive role in ‘developing and improving quantitative conflict risk models supporting the Global Conflict Risk Index’ in support of the EU’s conflict early warning and prevention policy. The focus will be the design, testing and validation of new and improvement of existing methodologies to describe dynamics of and predict occurrence of violent conflict. It will involve in particular the use of statistical methods with open source data. The work relates to research and development for quantitatively assessing conflict risk, in the context of EU external policy, including conflict prevention, disaster risk reduction and climate change policies, addressing specifically the political priorities of the European Green Deal and a Stronger Europe in the World. The job holder will contribute the Unit’s work in partnership with a number of Commission Directorates General and the External Action Service.
