Global High Frequency Trading Firm
Unique opportunities have transpired for entry level graduates in engineering, statistics, physics, and applied mathematics to work for a funds management firm. With an outstanding presence in Australian and the U.S, my client boosts an impressive team of dedicated quantitative traders, analysts and computational scientists.
The successful applicant will report to the Head of Quantitative Research and assist in day to day administration and support of quantitative strategies. This is a fantastic opportunity for entry level graduates in statistics, mathematics, engineering and physics. Finance experience or knowledge of financial markets is not necessary, however candidates need to demonstrate an interest in this area. Candidates with a 1st Class Hons and PhD are strongly encouraged to apply.
Please note that applicants will be shortlisted on the basis of their academic credentials, which must be at a High Distinction level. Anything less will not be considered, therefore only the top 1% will be contacted. The type of modelling skills we desired are varied, therefore we are keen to speak to anyone from an applied or pure mathematics background. These include but not limited to; theoretical physics (anything from dark matter/energy to quantum mechanics, computational, fluid dynamics, string theory or condensed matter, etc), plasma or electromagnetism. Engineering (mechanical, electrical, nano, aerospace or financial), actuarial, statistics (probability modelling is highly desired).
Applicants must send their academic transcripts and sit for a 1 hour maths test onsite at Bluefin. (Finance and trading knowledge will not be tested).
