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.

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.

D. E. Shaw Research also welcomes summer internship applications from undergraduate and graduate students from a range of technical disciplines. We are no longer accepting intern applications for summer 2016, but we encourage interested students to apply in the fall for summer 2017 internships. Opportunities for experienced and early-college interns are outlined here.

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.

D. E. Shaw Research welcomes inquiries from all exceptionally well-qualified applicants, regardless of race, gender, age, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or status in any other category protected by law.
