My name is Lawrence and I work on the recruiting team at the D. E. Shaw group. As you may know, the D. E. Shaw group is a global investment and technology development firm with more than $41 billion in investment capital.
We’re excited to announce D. E. Shaw Exploration Fellowship 2017, a unique educational opportunity taking place at our New York City headquarters from July 19 to 20. Given that women are underrepresented in the global alternative investment industry, we specifically designed a program in an effort to bring together talented and intellectually curious women enrolled in Ph.D. programs. These women will receive an introduction to our firm, insights into our rigorous approach to finance, and several professional and social networking opportunities. By engaging with a cross section of people at the firm, from recent Ph.D. graduates to senior leaders, these women will learn about the challenging problems on which we work, as well as the transition from academia to finance. Participants will receive a $2,000 stipend, accommodations, and travel to and from New York City.
Details are available on the Exploration Fellowship website, and applications are due by May 19, 2017. Thank you in advance for your help! Please feel free to reach out directly with any questions.
