Quantitative Analyst Internship


Save to shortlist Saved to shortlist Apply now

G-Research is Europe’s leading quantitative finance research firm. We hire the brightest minds in the world to tackle some of the biggest questions in finance. We pair this expertise with machine learning, big data, and some of the most advanced technology available to predict movements in financial markets.

The role 

G-Research: What We Do

G-Research is Europe’s leading quantitative finance research firm.

  • 10-week summer programme (June to September 2023)
  • 09:00-17:30 working hours
  • Based in Central London

Over the course of 10 weeks, G-Research Summer Research Programme interns gain a unique insight into life as a Quantitative Analyst at a leading quantitative finance research firm.

You will be integrated into our team of Quantitative Analysts where you will analyse algorithmic behaviour, right down to order placement levels. This will provide real-world context to tackle a project with actual implications on algorithmic decision-making.

You will also get to experience what it is like to work with a systematic platform and what the pipeline looks like, from forecast generation right through to order performance.

During your time with us, you will work on a meaningful and challenging research project that demands the application of innovative yet pragmatic mathematical and computational analysis.

The project will be data science driven and focused around market microstructure, using our extensive market data set to test a series of hypotheses (either self-generated or provided by wider team) on a distributed computing platform. For candidates who are more engineering focused, there is also the possibility to spend time building on the existing tool set, given that it works towards your project resolution.

You will collaborate with one of our Quantitative Analysts who will act as a mentor as you work on your independent project. You will receive structured feedback and reviews to help you to improve and develop, culminating in a final presentation of your project to senior management.

Taking part in G-Research's Summer Internship Programme will give you an in-depth insight into our academic approach to the world of quantitative finance and allow you to explore the thriving city of London, while you get to know your fellow interns and colleagues through a full itinerary of fun social events.

A high percentage of our interns go on to join G-Research on a full-time basis on completion of their academic studies.

Who are we looking for?

The ideal candidate will have the following skills and experience:

  • Intermediate level of programming in at least one object oriented language, such as Python or C#
  • Interest in complex systems and tactical problem-solving and diagnosis
  • An interest in applying data science methodologies to real-world problems
  • You should be in the final or penultimate degree year in a highly technical or quantitative subject, such as Mathematics, Physics, Statistics, Engineering or Computer Science
  • Previous experience in finance is not required, although an interest in finance and the motivation to rapidly learn more is a prerequisite for working here.

Why should you apply?

  • Highly competitive compensation plus annual discretionary bonus
  • Lunch provided (via Just Eat for Business) and dedicated barista bar
  • Informal dress code and excellent work/life balance
  • Monthly company events
  • Central London office close to 5 stations and 6 tube lines

Please note, because we offer graduate roles to strong performers from our intern cohort, we are only able to consider applications from those graduating in 2024. Interviews will commence in October.

These roles will be fully on-site in our London offices.

G-Research is committed to cultivating and preserving an inclusive work environment. We are an ideas-driven business and we place great value on diversity of experience and opinions. We want to ensure that applicants receive a recruitment experience that enables them to perform at their best. If you have a disability or special need that requires accommodation please let us know in the relevant section.

We've signed the Gradcracker feedback pledge.

(This means that we will supply feedback if requested after an interview.)
