Overview

Spring is a great time to start something new and challenging! WorldQuant is currently offering a very unique opportunity to apply your quantitative skills through our Spring Alphathon, which is part of the WorldQuant Challenge.

 

The WorldQuant Challenge provides interested candidates with an opportunity to test their trading ideas and strategies using WebSim, WorldQuant’s web-based market simulator.  Qualified candidates earn points for quality alphas, and these points can lead to Bronze, Silver and Gold status.  Individuals who achieve Silver and Gold may be considered for Research Consultant positions with WorldQuant.

How the Spring Alphathon Works

Building on the success of the previous years’, WorldQuant has announced again “The Research Consultant Program”, as a part of its industry-academia interaction. In past, successful contestants were awarded a monthly stipend of up to Rs. 50,000/- across various universities. This time, they look forward to hire more part time research consultants offering many additional incentives through this WorldQuant challenge.

 

The Spring Alphathon makes the WorldQuant challenge even more exciting through the potential for up to 100 participants to receive a ONE-TIME SPECIAL STIPEND, at WorldQuant’s discretion, to individuals who progress to Gold level in two categories:

  • Level 1: The top 30 scorers that reach Gold level during the Alphathon period.
  • Level 2:  The next 70 ranked scorers who reach Gold level during the Alphathon period.

 

The participant with the highest total points at the close of the competition may be given a one-time special stipend! (Note: One-time special stipend amounts will vary depending on the level and rank.)

 

In each case, stipends are subject to WorldQuant’s discretion and will only be given to participants who are eligible to become Research Consultants (and actually become Research Consultants).
