The Centre for Risk Studies at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School is conducting a research programme to understand the risk of systemic shocks on financial, business and societal networks. A multi-year project is underway. In the past year a taxonomy of potential causes of systemic shocks was developed, together with a data architecture to represent complex systems. This second year of the project will explore techniques for propagating shocks through systems, including international banking networks and the financial system.
The Centre is looking to appoint a Research Associate to join the team and contribute to this growing area of research.
