Job Description We are seeking a talented quantitative research associate to join our tight-knit equity alpha-forecasting team. In this role, you will plan and coordinate the analytical and operational steps needed to establish a robust trading strategy, working alongside an integrated team of professionals across the company. Your responsibilities will include closely monitoring academic research (finance, accounting, and economics) and practitioner literature to create and refine investment ideas/strategies as well as manipulating, cleaning and analyzing large datasets with the intent to conduct bias-free simulations. In addition, you’ll be developing intuitions and ideas for predicting equity returns and communicating research progress and results on a regular basis.
Successful candidates will have a bachelor\\\'s or advanced degree in a quantitative subject from a top university and 1-3 years of experience in investment banking, equity research and/or quantitative investment research. Strong quantitative abilities and intermediate to strong programming skills (whether acquired academically or through hands-on experience) are also required. Ideal candidates will have some experience with corporate finance, accounting and trading, as well as prior exposure to European markets.
Qualifications Candidates must possess a strong interest in finance generally, and quantitative investing in particular, as well as a genuine interest in tackling large and complex datasets and projects. Successful candidates will be innately curious, resourceful, and well-organized and will have a demonstrable dedication to detail. Although industry experience is strongly preferred, we will also consider outstanding candidates looking to transition from post-doc or university-level faculty positions.
