Fellowships at D. E. Shaw Research

Each year, D. E. Shaw Research organizes highly selective paid fellowship programs for undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers working in scientific and technical fields relevant to our group's research. Each of our fellowship programs is an intensive, two-day symposium that includes scientific and technical presentations and workshops, career development discussions, and networking with peers and members of our team.

Upcoming Fellowship Program: DESRES Undergraduate & Master's Fellowship

This program will take place virtually on August 3 and 4, 2023.

Eligibility: Students pursuing undergraduate or master's degrees in applied mathematics, biology, chemistry, computer science, electrical engineering, machine learning, materials science, physics, or related fields at a U.S.-based institution.
