D. E. Shaw Research

Joining the Lab

D. E. Shaw Research has made a conscious effort to slowly and deliberately build a small team of truly extraordinary contributors rather than assembling a larger group of individuals who are simply "very good." We welcome inquiries from candidates of all backgrounds and levels of experience who display evidence of exceptional ability, and are as selective in our hiring of support personnel as we are in identifying gifted scientists and engineers.

Diversity and Inclusion

As an organization, we believe our strength lies not only in the talent of our individual team members but in our collective support of a diverse and inclusive workplace and in our commitment to fostering a collaborative, collegial, and flexible environment in which all of us can do our best work. We embrace diversity along all dimensions, and respect and value the unique qualities, perspectives, and identities of every person in our group.

Current Opportunities

A few of the areas in which we currently have particular needs are outlined below. It's worth noting, however, that we are generally less interested in hiring someone to fill a particular "slot" than in attracting extraordinarily capable individuals who are likely to make significant contributions to our efforts over the long term. For that reason, we are open to considering unusually well-qualified applicants even if none of these particular positions seems like an immediate match.

Individuals interested in pursuing opportunities with D. E. Shaw Research are encouraged to either apply online or send a CV or resume to Želimir Galjanić at Zelimir.Galjanic@career.DEShawResearch.com. We very much look forward to hearing from you.

On Friday, June 16, 2017, we will be hosting a Graduate and Postdoc Women's Forum at our Manhattan offices. We encourage interested graduate students and postdocs to read more about the event below and, if interested, to apply.
