EDHEC is looking to recruit a Quant Researcher to focus on ESG and Climate research for its newest FinTech venture, Scientific Analytics, to be based in Paris (4 Septembre campus).
Scientific Analytics is an early-stage project which will offer its researchers the opportunity to contribute to the launch and growth of a novel platform: EDHEC ambitions for Scientific Analytics to become a global reference for institutional investors to manage their financial and ESG risks.
Following in the footsteps of prior successes such as Edhec Risk Institute, Scientific Beta or Scientific Infra, this new project will perpetuate the tradition of transferring academic know-how to the industry.
The Quant Researcher will have the following objectives:
Participate in the research effort linked to the ESG & Climate dimensions of the platform, under the supervision of the ESG director.
Participate in the selection, qualification, and integration of the complex and sometimes poor-quality ESG data obtained through partnerships with data providers, in line with the platform’s strategic positioning.
Contribute to the production of research contents including case studies, working papers, and whitepapers with the aim to provide methodological transparency and to highlight research results to be published via the platform’s Knowledge & Education Centre.
Contribute to the construction of the platform’s portfolio analysis and allocation tools including the definition of the user logic, the technical specifications, the technical documentation, and the design of the visual interface.
Participate in the communication and marketing effort following the launch of the platform through videos, webinars, or physical conferences.
The ideal candidate:
Has a minimum of 3Y of experience as a financial engineer, data scientist or data engineer.
Has a genuine interest in working on ESG and Climate with a focus on having an impact.
Is proficient in python and relevant data science and data engineering frameworks.
