SIG’s Quantitative Research Internship offers you the opportunity to see the impact of your research directly while working right on one of our trading floors. With our team of quants, traders, and developers, you’ll explore applications of probability, statistics, stochastic optimization, and numerical analysis to real-world problems in the financial markets.
During the 10-week summer internship at our headquarters, you will gain exposure to real projects in proprietary trading as you collaborate with a Quantitative Research mentor. Our quant team consists of PhD-level researchers who are dedicated to the data-driven development and improvement of our trading models at SIG. You will also participate in an educational program that offers insight into the world of finance. Included in the program are lectures on the industry and small group sessions with our experienced researchers, focusing on the mathematical puzzles we work on solving every day.
