  • Degree in mathematics/statistics/computer science/physics or other quantitative field with high GPA
  • Programming skills (Python/Matlab/R or any relevant programming skills)
  • Experience with data desirable: transforming and analysing data sets - desired
  • Mathematical modelling: statistical models, optimisation, machine learning, simulation
  • A natural curiosity and a passion for continuous, self-driven learning
