Internship in Quantitative Research (Data Science/Machine Learning/Mathematical Modelling)

The company

G-Research is a leading quantitative research and technology company. We use scientific techniques, big data and world-class technology to predict future movements in financial markets.

What will your Internship look like?

You will be given a challenging research project that demands innovative yet pragmatic mathematical and computational approaches. Using rigorous scientific methodology, robust statistical analysis and pattern recognition you will analyse a data ecosystem, extracting deep insights. Your project may give you the opportunity to use statistical and "big data" analysis approaches, machine learning techniques (i.e. neural networks and deep learning; Bayesian non-parametrics) and optimisation methodologies to solve your problems!

For the duration of the Internship, you will be paired with one of our Quantitative Researchers who will act as a mentor as you work on your project. You will receive structured feedback and reviews to enable you to improve and develop, culminating in a final presentation to senior management of your research ideas. We are a very social firm, and you will also enjoy a full itinerary of social events with your peers throughout the Programme.

The 10-week programme runs July to September 2018 and based in the West End of London. We offer a highly competitive salary during the internship and working hours are 9-5.30pm.

Who are we looking for?

  • Ideally you will be in your final or penultimate year of a Masters or PhD in a highly numerable subject such as mathematics, physics, statistics, engineering or computer science.
  • A background in mathematics is a must.
  • An interest in applying data science, machine learning & optimisation techniques to real-world problems
  • Some experience of programming
