Applications for the 2024 Jane Street Graduate Research Fellowship (GRF) are now open! The Fellowship supports exceptional doctoral students currently pursuing a PhD in mathematics, computer science, physics, or statistics.

At Jane Street, we take a rigorous, quantitative approach to trading on global markets, combining techniques from machine learning, distributed systems, programmable hardware, statistics, and applied mathematics. Our culture is steeped in the idea that we will never stop solving; we’re looking forward to supporting technically excellent PhD students who share our core values of intellectual curiosity and humility. Those awarded the Fellowship will receive:

  • Full tuition and fees covered for the upcoming academic year.
  • A $45,000[1] USD stipend (or the equivalent in your local currency) to help with living expenses while completing their PhD.
  • An invitation to visit our office to give a talk on any topic to Jane Street employees and other Fellowship recipients; all expenses paid.

All Finalists will receive a $5,000 monetary award. Those selected as Fellows will receive this in addition to their Fellowship stipend.

[1] Note that stipends are taxable and may be subject to tax withholdings.

Learn more about your eligibility here. Applications must be submitted no later than December 17th, 2023.
