Super Quant Internship

Imagine working at the intersection of academia and practice, using a scientific approach to beat markets and delivering superior risk-adjusted returns and solutions to clients. That's the exciting work we do at Robeco Quantitative Research. Robeco Quantitative Research develops, maintains and enhances the proprietary models that drive our rules-based investment strategies. Our models leverage on in-house research to exploit market inefficiencies in multi-asset, equities and fixed income markets. Quantitative investment within Robeco has gained in importance in recent years. Our quantitative models no longer just play an advisory role but are the driving force behind how we invest more than EUR 40 billion worth of assets. Quantitative Research has an academic DNA which fits our scientific approach to investing. Our experienced researchers have backgrounds in economics, econometrics and mathematics. Many of us hold PhDs or CFA charters and some are affiliated to universities as assistant or associate professors. The department has many years' experience supervising top university talent and publishing academic research. Innovation and creativity play an important role in our work. Quantitative Research consists of a diverse group of researchers with over 10 different nationalities, that are on average 35 years old and of which half started as a Super Quant intern themselves.

The Super Quant Internship

Each year a new generation of Super Quant Interns is hired at Robeco Quantitative Research. Super Quant Internships are 6-month full time internships, usually from April through September, located in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Super Quant Internships are always combined with writing a master thesis on the same topic.
During the internship you will be supervised by our experienced researchers, who hold either a PhD or CFA charter. The internship program includes fun and interesting activities. You will get a look into what it's like to work at Robeco and in the asset management industry.


We are looking for master students in quantitative, financial or economic disciplines that have the possibility to write their master thesis with us. Students have to be EU citizens or be enrolled with an EU university.
The selection is based on skills, education, personality and motivation.
