Quoniam Doctoral Programme: conduct research where capital markets meet data science

With our programme for doctoral students, you can work on your doctorate and gain practical experience with an innovative asset manager at the same time.

Through our doctoral programme with a focus on financial market research, we foster innovative ideas and new talent. At Quoniam, our firm belief ever since our starting days has been that asset management should be closely integrated with academic research. Our strategies are based on this conviction. As a pioneer in multi factor investing, we are shaping the future of quantitative asset management. Would you like to be part of this innovation story and link your academic work with asset management and its practice? Then apply for the Quoniam Doctoral Programme. 

“A science-based approach is the foundation of our quantitative investment strategies. Therefore, cooperation with leading universities and the promotion of young academics is of great importance to us.”
Dr Jieyan Fang-Klingler , Director Research Forecasts, responsible for the Doctoral Programme
What we offer   

Every year, we recruit one doctoral student for our cross-asset class research area.
