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.
Opportunities for experienced and early-college interns are outlined on the page below:

D. E. Shaw Research welcomes inquiries from all exceptionally
well-qualified applicants, regardless of race, gender, age, religion, national
