Women in Quant Finance 2021
G-Research is committed to growing the range of voices and perspectives within our industry. We are therefore excited to announce the continuation of our Women’s Engagement Programme with our latest Women in Quant Finance event. After a very successful European inaugural event in 2020, we are delighted to run the programme for a second time for those based in the US and Canada.
This remote event will include a range of introductory and technical talks, as well as collaborative skills courses and interview prep sessions. Our goal is to give women studying for a PhD the chance to learn more about working in quantitative research in finance, while providing them with the chance to build up a network of their peers.
The event will be held remotely, so you’ll be able to join from the comfort of your own home via video conference call. It will take place starting 12:00 PM EDT/9:00 AM PDT of the 27th and 28th of March, 2020.
On Day 1, we will host a talk by one of our quant researchers, focused on the financial industry. Following this, we’ll be hosting a panel discussion, and afterwards you’ll get the chance to network with your peers.
On Day 2, you will hear an introductory talk from some of our quant researchers before participating in an interactive case study, giving you the chance to get hands-on with the type of work we engage with.
Each day’s activities will run for approximately 3 hours.
Interested in participating? Then please apply by sending your CV (please include your GPA for each degree) and cover letter (outlining your motivations for wanting to join the programme) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To be eligible to take part, you need to be a woman currently studying for a PhD in a STEM subject. There will be limited places available for those studying for their master’s degree. This event is specific to those studying in the US and Canada. If you’re studying elsewhere, please sign up below to hear news on future events.
We will stop accepting applications for the event on the 1st of March. Attendees will be confirmed by the 9th of March.
If you are selected to participate, you will be guaranteed an interview for a full-time position or for our Summer Research Programme, an internship programme in quantitative research (applications now open).
