Full Text of JOE Listing:
Harvey Mudd College has launched a new research collaboration bringing together academics and leaders in the financial advising industry. We are hiring a PhD researcher to co-author an article to be submitted to a top-tier finance journal. This is a full-time paid position lasting about three months.
Over the past 25 years, Advanced Practice Network has developed a model for personal investing that departs significantly from modern portfolio theory. Our goal is to test and refine the model, subject it to the rigors of peer review, and ultimately influence the wider financial planning industry.
Candidates must have strong skills in quantitative analysis, research, and writing, and ideally a solid grasp of foundational theories in investment and retirement. The researcher will undertake a comprehensive literature review; will build models and run scenarios in close collaboration with our CFA; and will collaborate in concept development and writing with leading analysts at APN. The work can take place from any location, but will involve daily conversations with other members of the research team in Los Angeles.
