Women in Quant Finance 2022 (European Students)
G-Research is committed to growing the range of voices and perspectives within our industry. We are therefore excited to announce that our latest Women in Quant Finance event will take place in September 2022.
This 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 (or recently graduated from a PhD programme) the chance to learn more about working in quantitative research in finance, while providing them with the chance to build a network of their peers. This event will be focused on those studying at European universities, but if you are studying in the UK, the US, or anywhere else, you can register your interest in future events here.
The event will be held in Central London, with an introductory dinner on Sunday 4 September, followed by a day of talks and workshops at our offices from 09:30 to 19:00 on Monday 5 September.
The main day will feature a mix of activities, including:
- A talk by one of our quant researchers, focused on the financial industry
- A roundtable discussion session
- An interactive case study, giving you the chance to get hands-on with the type of work we do
- A drinks and networking session
- A games night
If you are selected to take part in the event, we will cover your accommodation (for both 4 and 5 September), food, and travel expenses. You will also be guaranteed an interview with G-Research (for either an internship or permanent position).
Additionally, for those participants with children, we will also cover their travel expenses and provide a crèche while you are participating in the event.
Interested in participating? Then please apply by sending your CV (please include the classification for each degree) and 250 words (max) outlining your motivations for wanting to join the programme to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event is open to women, transgender, and gender-expansive people currently studying for a PhD (or recently graduated from a PhD programme) in a STEM subject. There will also be limited places available for those studying for their master’s degree. This event is specific to those studying in Europe. If you are studying elsewhere, please sign up using the link below to hear news on future events.
Applications for the event will be reviewed on a rolling basis and places are strictly limited, so an early application is strongly advised. Final deadline for applications is 31 July 2022.
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).
