Job offers

 

Postdoctoral fellow

One to three year(s) academic research project in the field of econophysics (financial time series modeling, agent based simulations, random matrix theory, market microstructure and order book dynamics, market impact, market instabilities etc.). You will be working with world-renowned experts, embedded in a team of 45 full-time researchers. Although an interest in econophysics and finance is crucial, no prior knowledge in the field is needed.


Ideal candidate:

  • PhD in experimental or theoretical physics, life science, mathematics etc.

  • Good intuition, creative and rigorous, with a taste for data analysis and modelling

  • Good analytical and programming skills in Python, C++ or R

  • Good teamwork skills

PhD Student

Three years PhD research contract to work on market microstructure related issues (impact, order book dynamics, market instabilities), or statistical physics of socio-economic systems (micro- and macro-economics, collective phenomena etc.).

Ideal candidate:

  • Master's degree in theoretical physics, or mathematics.

  • Good intuition, creative and rigorous, with a taste for data analysis and modelling

  • Good analytical and programming skills in Python, C++ or R

  • Good teamwork skills

Master Interns

Three to six months internships on several subjects. One of them is concerned with the impact of detailed-balance violating decision rules in socioeconomic models inspired from statistical physics. Indeed most models assume detailed-balanc, and relaxing such a hypothesis is essential to see whether conclusions based on current models are indeed robust and generic.

To apply, address us a CV and a cover letter, together with a couple of references.

Spontaneous applications are also welcome.
