GO LOOKING FOR CHANGE
We are looking for driven and avidly inquisitive individuals with a research scientist mindset, ready to challenge ideas and push through new solutions.
You’ll be embedded as a researcher within one of the Systematic Investment teams where, from day one, you’ll actively contribute to the development of our quantitative strategies.
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
Based in our London office, you will be working in a research position designed for high-calibre, highly numerate individuals. We value free thinkers, and we have created a fast-paced and meritocratic environment where you will be encouraged to apply your own initiative and challenge conventional wisdom. You will be delivering on the research agenda, in addition to back testing/researching forecasts of asset returns on horizons of hours to years.
We all share a tireless drive for innovation and participants tend to be one of the top students at their university. Previous associates are now involved in creating and optimising our signature systematic trading models.
This is 16-month scheme of structured learning where you will be part of a select cohort of associates specialising in quantitative research.
- The non-rotational nature of the scheme allows you to focus and deepen your knowledge through immediate responsibility.
- You receive daily mentoring from senior members of the Marshall Wace team, who have a matchless record of helping high performing individuals reach their true potential.
The scheme is designed expressly to offer the right blend of breadth, challenge and support to enable ambitious and exceptional individuals to develop their careers with us.
