New places coming up early year – expected February 2019
We are regularly looking for a final year MSc. student to do an internship or placement in the field of quantitative modeling in energy markets (electricity and gas).
The European energy market is very volatile: prices go up and down in response to the weather forecasts, oil price changes, not to mention news affecting supply expectations (‘shale gas’, ‘Groningen’, ‘Russia’, ‘nuclear plant inspections’), etc. Our software models help energy companies to run a more profitable business in a market where margins are slim.
KYOS Energy Consulting develops financial analysis software for trading, valuation and risk management in energy and other commodity markets. The software is in use at large corporations, mainly energy companies, large industrials and trading houses. KYOS continuously works on the further improvement, extension and integration of its software suite.
First of all, we will define a suitable project at the start of the internship, coupled with with a scope that is manageable within the internship period. As an energy market intern, you will work 3 to 5 days a week on this project. Examples of projects could range from: short-term price forecasting, optimal bidding of power plants in the market, medium- and long-term scenario analysis, valuation of power plants or energy options, optimal hedging and risk management strategies, etc.
You will contribute to the development of new functionalities, and empirically test them on market data. Together with your international KYOS colleagues, you will not only use existing models, but also develop new models, analyze data and assess forecasting accuracy.
With this internship you will get a good understanding of energy markets and energy trading, as well as apply your mathematical skills to develop powerful tools for traders.

After the 3-months period, the internship may be combined with the writing of your Master thesis.
We offer an entrepreneurial work environment in an international team with several ‘quants’. You will gain valuable experience in energy markets and financial modeling.
