A client of ours is looking for an energetic, outgoing, and driven researcher to join an expanding team within a hedge fund.

The team is comprised of Research Scientists from some of the top ranked national labs and universities in the world, and they pride themselves on using the most advanced technologies, and largest data sets in order to find money making opportunities in the financial markets.

Requirements:
- PhD in Physics, Statistics, Mathematics, Engineering, Comp Sci, or similar
