Annual call for applications of the " For women in quantitative finance " scholarship

On the occasion of the International Women in Science Day, the Chair "Econophysics & complex systems" opens the 2022 call for applications for the "CFM Woman in quantitative finance" PhD scholarship. This award encourages the careers of young female researchers in this field, where there are still few women.

On the occasion of International Women in Science Day, the CFM Woman in Quantitative Finance Scholarship is opening its call for applications for 2022.  The laureate can thus benefit from the network of the "Econophysics & complex systems" Chair, headed by Michael Benzaquen, CNRS research director at the Hydrodynamics Laboratory (LadHyX*), as well as a support of 2250 euros per month. The laureate of the first grant, Cécilia Aubrun, is currently conducting her work within the Chair on the role of volatility, i.e. internal market price variations, in the onset of financial crises.

About the Chair:
The "Econophysics & Complex Systems" Chair aims to develop tools to understand the dynamics of economic systems by breaking free from the highly theoretical models usually used in this discipline. Led by Michael Benzaquen, this Chair aims to use an analytical approach from the field of statistical physics to study aggregate behaviour in the presence of interactions, heterogeneities and feedback loops. Since 2018, this research has been made possible thanks to the support of the patron Jean-Philippe Bouchaud, President of Capital Fund Management, one of the largest French investment funds. CFM is thus making its infrastructure and data available to enrich the models developed by Michael Benzaquen's team.
