As a Quantitative Research Associate, you will join a group of PhD level researchers dedicated to the data-driven studies, development, and improvement of trading strategies at SIG. Our Quants apply their mathematical thinking, analysis of complex datasets and problem solving skills to create solutions in today’s competitive and constantly changing landscape of financial markets. Prior to working at SIG, our researchers have been recognized for their accomplishments through fellowships, grants, academic competitions, and publications in refereed research journals.
Quants spend most of their day on the trading floors, seated side-by-side with traders and technologists. This enables them to be part of the conversations that shape our trading activities and turn quantitative methods into strategies that capitalize on trading opportunities. Since our researchers are working in real time, you have the ability to quickly see the impact your work has on our business.
What we're looking for
- PhD in Mathematics, Physics, Statistics, Electrical Engineering, Operations Research or a related field of study
- Solid analytical knowledge in areas of probability, statistics, calculus, and linear algebra
- Experience working on in-depth research projects
- Ability to get computers to accomplish tasks reliably and efficiently (a specific language proficiency is less important to us)
