The PDT team - a quantitative investment manager - is hiring new or recent PhD graduates and experienced researchers (postdoctoral fellows, faculty, scientific lab, finance industry) to create and improve proprietary trading models and strategies while working closely with a deep bench of senior researchers.
We have a successful record of hiring, challenging, and retaining talented researchers from diverse academic backgrounds. Individuals interested in conducting innovative research with real-world impact seem to enjoy and excel at the types of problems we like to solve.
PDT Researchers work in small, nimble teams where merit and contribution, not seniority, drive the discussion. We strive to foster an intellectually challenging environment that encourages collaboration and innovative ideas.
In our research-driven approach to the financial markets, our Chief Scientist oversees the group-wide research agenda, ensuring team members work on the most critical and interesting problems, with a focus on research rigor and standards.
Why join us? PDT Partners has a stellar 28+ year track record and a reputation for excellence. Our goal is to be the best quantitative investment manager in the world—measured by the quality of our products, not their size. PDT’s very high employee-retention rate speaks for itself. Our people are intellectually extraordinary and our community is close-knit, down-to-earth, and diverse.
Below is a list of skills and experiences we think are relevant. Even if you don’t think you’re a perfect match, we still encourage you to apply because we are committed to developing our people.
