Introducing the Oxford-Man Institute of Quantitative Finance

We aim to be a world-leading centre for interdisciplinary research in quantitative finance, with a particular focus on alternative investments, machine learning and data science.

We bring together academics and students from diverse backgrounds across the University of Oxford and beyond to do fundamental research and to answer key questions about financial markets, and potentially to change how they work and how one interacts with them.

We collaborate with finance practitioners to identify the most important and exciting problems, and to access data that lets us approach them in new ways.

The result is trailblazing research that contributes directly to the the financial economy in the 21st century.


Man Professor of Quantitative Finance in association with Christ Church.

The Oxford Man Institute is currently seeking to fill the post of the Man Professorship of Quantitative Finance.

The financial sector has changed enormously over the last decade and the relevant academic priorities have also changed. In this new environment, the Oxford Man Institute believes that the current dramatic advances in the ways that empirical data can be effectively used will take the sector into new directions over the coming decades.

The University seeks to appoint to the Man Professorship an outstanding researcher who can help the Oxford Man Institute to be at the forefront of these developments and contribute to OMI’s ambition to be the leading research institute worldwide in these areas.
