Dr. Rouskas,

I am a Corporate Recruiter for Quantlab Financial, a Houston-based, quantitative, high frequency trading firm.  One of my coworkers and Research leads, Aaron George, recommended I reach out to you to pass along information about our Spring internship and Post Doctoral opportunities around your network as he is an Alma Mater of NCSU.  We are looking to hire Computational Science Interns and Post Doctoral Scientists for the Spring to work in our Research department and information is included below.  We would appreciate any assistance you can provide in forwarding this out to your network and/or posting anywhere you see fit.  We’d love to build a relationship with you and NCSU!

Thank you for any assistance you can provide!
