Two Sigma's quant researchers will be speaking with UIUC students on Wednesday, October 7th, and we are looking forward to getting to know you at our virtual PhD Coffee Chat.

 

Please join us to informally discuss your research interests, some challenges you're facing, and to see how you can apply your research experience at Two Sigma. Our Quant Researchers will be there to discuss their transition from academia into industry. Learn about our Internship program and what to expect during the application and interview process. 

 

Kindly apply for a spot by applying here. We hope to see you there!
