Responsibilities

Over the course of 10 weeks, G-Research Summer Research Programme interns gain a unique insight into life as a Quantitative Analyst at a leading quantitative finance research firm.You will be integrated into our team of Quantitative Analysts where you will analyse algorithmic behaviour, right down to order placement levels. This will provide real-world context to tackle a project with actual implications on algorithmic decision-making.You will also get to experience what it is like to work with a systematic platform and what the pipeline looks like, from forecast generation right through to order performance.During your time with us, you will work on a meaningful and challenging research project that demands the application of innovative yet pragmatic mathematical and computational analysis.The project will be data science driven and focused around market microstructure, using our extensive market data set to test a series of hypotheses (either self-generated or provided by wider team) on a distributed computing platform. For candidates who are more engineering focused, there is also the possibility to spend time building on the existing tool set, given that it works towards your project resolution.You will collaborate with one of our Quantitative Analysts who will act as a mentor as you work on your independent project. You will receive structured feedback and reviews to help you to improve and develop, culminating in a final presentation of your project to senior management.Taking part in G-Research's Summer Internship Programme will give you an in-depth insight into our academic approach to the world of quantitative finance and allow you to explore the thriving city of London, while you get to know your fellow interns and colleagues through a full itinerary of fun social events.A high percentage of our interns go on to join G-Research on a full-time basis on completion of their academic studies.
