The Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) has welcomed Jane Street as a sponsor of Summer Research Scholarships (SRS) 2023-24.

AMSI Summer Research Scholarships (previously called Vacation Research Scholarships) support undergraduate students from around Australia to spend their summer holidays working on supervised research projects. Scholars undertake research, build a project, submit a blog post, write a formal research report and present their work at AMSIConnect – the exclusive national student conference held in February.

“Jane Street is a research-driven trading firm that relies on techniques from machine learning, distributed systems, programmable hardware, and statistics to trade on markets around the world. Their traders, researchers, and technologists work side by side every day, using cutting-edge technology to keep financial markets transparent and stable.”

AMSI programs provide the next generation of mathematicians the opportunity to pursue their interests and be inspired by world leaders in the field. These participants are the future of the research workforce who will help advance society through cutting-edge exploration and analysis.

AMSI Director, Professor Tim Marchant, said the Institute was excited to welcome Jane Street as an SRS sponsor to support the development of Australia’s brightest to pursue research careers.

“The SRS program is essential to safeguard Australia’s future supply of researchers with expertise in the mathematical sciences” said Professor Marchant.

“We look forward to collaborating with the Jane Street team to enhance the undergraduate experience of students in the mathematical sciences and related disciplines,” Professor Marchant added.

“Jane Street is honored to sponsor the AMSI’s Summer Research Scholarships Program. It’s incredible to see all of the opportunities that AMSI has created for young people in the STEM field; we’re proud to help them sustain and extend their ability to support undergraduate students across Australia,” said Craig Falls of Jane Street.

Jane Street will host a virtual estimathon during the Summer Research program (December 2023 to February 2024).

Meet the outstanding students awarded 2023-24 AMSI Summer Research Scholarships and learn about their projects.
