The D. E. Shaw group is a multi-strategy asset manager that attracts exceptional talent to solve problems at the nexus of finance and technology. My colleagues at our headquarters in Manhattan include medalists from the International Math and Physics Olympiads; Rhodes, Truman, and Fulbright scholars; and Putnam and NSF Fellows, as well as numerous published authors. Former members of the firm have gone on to found successful companies, including Amazon.com.
 
We’ve developed some of our best talent through the internship program, which is open to students in any academic field. In fact, most of our interns have no prior finance experience. They work closely with their teams in one of our quantitative, discretionary, or corporate development groups, and some go on to continue their projects as full-time employees. We offer extensive training in finance, business writing, and presentation skills, and interns have many opportunities to interact with colleagues at firmwide lectures and research presentations. This year, our interns attended lunches with members of the firm’s Executive Committee and a private talk by Larry Summers.
 
For additional information about the internship experience and who we are, please see our employee profile videos at https://www.deshaw.com/EmployeeProfiles.shtml
 
Let me know if you have students who may be interested or if you’d like to discuss the program. I am available to speak at your convenience and hope your semester’s going well.

I am a project leader in the Navy Group at the Institute for Defense Analyses in Alexandria, VA.  We have an immediate opening for a new Research Staff Member and I want to bring the opportunity to the attention of any grad students or postdocs who may be interested.  IDA is a non-profit Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) under contract with the Department of Defense to provide independent, objective, and rigorous analyses of national security issues.  Our division supports the Office of the Secretary of Defense, reporting to Congress on the testing of new defense systems.  We are heavily involved in analyzing system designs and intended uses, developing appropriate evaluation methodologies, providing detailed test designs, and performing independent analyses of the results.     
 
The RSM slot is a full-time, permanent position with a generous salary and benefits.  It is a great opportunity for someone who might wish to apply their analytical skills to this important area of national security.  We spend much of our time writing, briefing, and meeting with Navy and other defense personnel, often explaining technical issues to non-scientists, so the position requires strong communication and teaching skills.  Since we deal with classified information, current American citizenship and the ability to obtain security clearance are mandatory.  Moderate travel is involved, and the position offers a rare chance to ride aboard some of the Navy’s newest ships, submarines, and aircraft.  The IDA atmosphere is quite collegial and academic, with excellent facilities and support services.
 
While the official job description mentions specific areas of technical and military experience as desirable, most of the training will be obtained on the job; a physics or astrophysics PhD student with a good analytical mind would be well qualified.  Experience in statistical data analysis is particularly helpful.  Of the approximately 110 analysts in our division, 75% have PhDs, with 60% of those earned in the physical sciences.  More than half of our overall staff (and the vast majority of our recent hires) came to IDA directly out of grad school or postdocs, with degrees from institutions such as Columbia, Illinois, Johns Hopkins, Maryland, Michigan, MIT, Northwestern, Penn, Princeton, Texas, UCSB, Wisconsin, and Yale.
 
The main www.ida.org site provides some general background about the Institute.  Interested candidates are welcome to contact me directly for additional information.  
 
Thanks.
