The Tyree Room, The John Niland Scientia Building

Organised by:
Mathematics Society (MATHSOC)

Our sponsors Jane Street will be coming in to uni again this year, to talk about what the work they do in trading and to give you an opportunity to discuss graduate roles and internships.
Quantitative Trading Information Session @ 12pm

Please join us for an informative look into the world of trading and technology!

Two representatives from Jane Street (Trader and Developer) will be hosting the talk and discuss full time and internship overseas opportunities. Students (undergraduate, masters, doctoral) looking to utilize their quantitative and technical skills in a trading environment and want to learn more about Jane Street's technology should attend! Food and beverages will be served.

But wait, there's more! Stay the afternoon, form a team and keep your brain sharp for ...

ESTIMATHON! (RSVP required) @ 3pm

"What's an Estimathon" you ask?! It's a team contest where the goal is to create confidence intervals to difficult math and science questions. e.g., what's the volume of the earth's oceans (in cubic km); or, how many prime number contain strictly increasing digits. It's a very interactive game, and focuses on some ideas that are central to what we do at Jane Street: thinking about hard problems, assessing confidence levels, trying to strike a balance between quick-and-rough estimates versus more refined solutions. The game is pretty mathematically driven, but we welcome anyone interested in giving it a shot! Food & drinks will be served.

Spaces are limited so please RSVP soon if you're interested. The details of the event and confirmation of attendance will be sent via email closer to the event. We look forward to seeing you soon!
