Responsibilities:

Collaborate with Traders and Quant Researchers to optimize and improve trading strategies;

Research and analyze financial data to find exploitable patterns;

Design and implement complex quantitative models and automated trading algorithms.

A day in the life:

08:00 – 08:15 AM:

I arrive at the office and walk into the lounge to get myself a sandwich and a glass of orange juice and while I am at it, I bring some coffee for my teammates. I log in to my computer and walk towards the huddle area to listen to the daily morning meeting which gets us up to speed on what has happened over night and the most important things to expect for today.

08:30 – 10:00 AM:

After the morning meeting I start running the quantitative models that are already in production and send updated parameters to Traders so they can put it in their trading engine.

10:00 – 12:00 AM:

Mostly programming, I start working on my to-do list which are mostly researching and designing new trading algorithms, but projects can range from statistically investigating a trading idea in Python, R or MATLAB to coding new improved versions of trading algos in JAVA. As an example today I was working on a bug in one of the trading algorithms that I wrote as we noticed it doing some weird trades.

12:00 – 12:30 PM:

Lunchtime! At Flow we enjoy a great lunches. To illustrate this: Every now and then, we get spareribs and nothing makes me happier.

12:30 – 17:45 PM:

After lunch I continue where I left off and try to finish any projects with pressing deadlines, or ad-hoc research requests that come in.

17:45 PM:

As most European exchanges close, I shut down my PC and head home. However, on Fridays it usually worthwhile to stay and have a drink at our in-house bar where some good old trash talking usually leads to a counterstrike team battle at our gaming room combined with a few beers.

What You Need to Succeed:

  • An academic degree (e.g. Physics, Math, Econometrics, Computer Science, Engineering, Machine Learning or similar);
  • Experience with a scientific programming language ( e.g. Python / MATLAB / R or similar);

08:30 – 9:30

A new developed strategy based on a curve model is live at another trading desk. I check if the setup is correct and if the model behaves correctly. Since the model is in a deployment phase it is very important to monitor the behavior of the strategy until someone else can fully takeover. I keep monitoring the strategy until 09:30.

09:30 – 12:00

Back at my own desk. I analyze last weeks data in Python while monitoring the behavior of the curve model on the site. Discuss the model with a fellow quant trader to see where we can improve.

NANO ENGINEERED METASURFACES FOR SPACE OPTICAL COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS

internship

WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING?

The European Space Agency has launched a program for the development of Optical Telecommunication systems. Such systems exploit light (wavelength: 0.85 – 10 μm – frequency: 30 – 353 THz) to transmit information, offering an extremely interesting alternative to the increasing scarce RF spectrum, with an unregulated, extremely broad band.
The TNO Optics and Space departments in Delft (where the project will take place) are heavily involved in this program. One of the technological challenges for the development of these systems is the optical channel multiplexing. In a wavelength multiplexing system, each optical beam contains a communication channel in which the information is modulated by an optical carrier, different for each channel. This can be achieved by means of dispersive elements (Bragg gratings, surface gratings). In these architectures, each optical beam arrives at a different angle on the dispersive multiplexer and by means of diffraction all beams are aligned at the output of the element. If, on one side, the wavelength dispersive characteristic of the grating is used to separate the channels, on the other side, it represents an unwanted effect within each channel.

Metasurfaces of plasmonic and or dielectric nano resonators have emerged in the last years as a new technological platform for the realization of unconventional optical components that can enable the realization of unprecedented instruments and sensors. These surfaces, consisting of arrays of nano resonators, allow controlling the properties of light (phase, polarization and amplitude) at nanoscale.

In this project, we want to investigate the use of nano-patterned metasurfaces with an engineered dispersion that can compensate the one of the gratings. During the project, you will learn more about Space Optical Communication technology; you will learn the theory of nanoengineered metasurfaces and you will be introduced to the design methodology and design tools for these structures. After this preparatory phase, you will work at the design of the required metasurface, based on given requirements. This will give you also the opportunity to learn the use of state-of-the-art electromagnetic CAD tools.

WHAT DO WE REQUIRE OF YOU?

  • A very good background in Electromagnetism, Optics and Physics;
  • A predisposition for team working, good spirit of initiative and a proactive attitude;
  • Very good knowledge of spoken and written English.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT OF YOUR WORK SITUATION?

The internship will be performed at TNO Delft, Stieltjesweg, in the Optics Department, in cooperation with the Nano Instrumentation Department. The student will have a daily supervisor and will work in a stimulating environment, interacting with other internship students and PhD students, and also with TNO staff members.

WHAT CAN TNO OFFER YOU?

You want to work on the precursor of your career; a work placement gives you an opportunity to take a good look at your prospective future employer. TNO goes a step further. It’s not just looking that interests us; you and your knowledge are essential to our innovation. That’s why we attach a great deal of value to your personal and professional development. You will, of course, be properly supervised during your work placement and be given the scope for you to get the best out of yourself. Naturally, we provide suitable work placement compensation.

NEW APPLICATIONS IN MICROSCALE PATTERNING AND CONTROL

internship

WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING?

Steering and aligning of matter at the microscale is being actively pursued in many areas such as lithography, surface design and bioengineering. To a large extent the reason is the unfulfilled promise of the new applications that could be created from achieving single particle control at each scale. At the materials solutions department within TNO we work in between upcoming technologies and promising applications with industrial relevance. Our department has a large track record of particle synthesis varying in both size and morphology of organic and inorganic particles. Often such particles are found in between amorphous dispersion and emulsion where orderly structures were not taken into account. At present various high demanding applications are requiring that particles are aligned and follow specific patterns which will enable the features needed for a given functionality. In this assignment we aim at combining our extensive experience of particle synthesis with recently acquired state-of-the-art setup for colloidal particle manipulation.

For this internship you might expect tasks such as:

  • Literature study.
  • Learning set-up operation.
  • Material selection.
  • Process characterization.
  • Report writing.
  • Presenting your work among peers.

The duration of this internship is 6-9 months.

WHAT DO WE REQUIRE OF YOU?

You are a proactive and independent MSc student with background in one of the following areas Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry or similar. At the same time, you are seeking for an interdisciplinary and challenging environment within applied research. A hands-on mentality is a must. Knowledge or experience in colloidal synthesis is a plus, but certainly not mandatory. Good communication skills in English, particularly for presenting your work and writing reports is expected.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT OF YOUR WORK SITUATION?

TNO is an independent research organization whose expertise and research make an important contribution to the competitiveness of companies and organizations, to the economy and to the quality of society as a whole.
