Our firm has made a conscious effort to build a carefully selected team of uniquely talented individuals, each among the very best in his or her profession, rather than a larger group of highly competent but less remarkable personnel.
Our staff includes Rhodes and Fulbright Scholars, Putnam Fellows, and winners of the International Math Olympiad, among other awards. Besides being keenly engaged in their work, our employees have diverse interests, many of which are far removed from the world of finance. Over 60 of our investment professionals hold Ph.D.'s, and approximately 20 percent of our staff are published authors whose work ranges from papers in specialized academic journals to award-winning mystery novels. Our staff includes entrepreneurs, professional opera singers, poets, actors, songwriters, painters, and filmmakers.
As part of a global team, our employees work with smart people trained in a variety of disciplines from around the world in a collegial, casual environment. As a result of this work climate, our company's substantial infrastructure, and a large capital base with which to apply great ideas, many employees feel that the firm combines some of the most attractive features of academia and finance.
D. E. Shaw Research has made a conscious effort to slowly and deliberately build a small team of truly extraordinary contributors rather than assembling a larger group of individuals who are simply "very good." We welcome inquiries from candidates of all backgrounds and levels of experience who display evidence of exceptional ability, and are as selective in our hiring of support personnel as we are in identifying gifted scientists and engineers.
A few of the areas in which we currently have particular needs are outlined below. It's worth noting, however, that we are generally less interested in hiring someone to fill a particular "slot" than in attracting extraordinarily capable individuals who are likely to make significant contributions to our efforts over the long term. For that reason, we are open to considering unusually well-qualified applicants even if none of these particular positions seems like an immediate match.

It's not what it says it might be related to when it is posted. The same thing posted on the 15th might have a different meaning than when and where it's posted on the 31st. I had a neighbor in Maryland that was pretty fishy. They put his pickup truck out in the yard for sale every few months but never entertained selling it. The truck seemed to be a message that something was ready. So the meaning of this ad must be only known to the recipient and sender. But why use it for so long... HUH that doesn't make much sense.

This is along the lines I was thinking. Recruitment of Artist as they tend to have a more creative "out of the box" thinking. Would be good for original research.

the obvious question - amazingly unanswered :
has anyone sent a CV - real or ficticious - and got a reply ?
Those who receive a reply I never heard from again....
