OPPORTUNITIES

WOMEN IN QUANTITATIVE FINANCE SCHOLARSHIP

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

Ideal candidate:

  • Master's degree in applied mathematics, theoretical physics, life sciences....

  • 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

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). You will be working with world-renowned experts, embedded in a team of 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).

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

While there are no PhD offers at this time, we welcome spontaneous expressions of interest

To apply, submit a cover letter, CV, and a couple of references.

Spontaneous applications are also welcome.
