QuoteOriginally posted by: LC85I'm currently a year away from finishing my PhD in experimental physics and am looking to work as a quant once I finish. I do not have a financial background other than my own personal reading and was hoping to get some opinions on whether I stand a realistic chance of getting a front office position in London?If you have only limited experience in finance, then how do you know that you really want a front office position. Also, can you explain briefly, what a front office position is? The good/bad news is that physics Ph.D.'s do more or less the same thing in front office/mid-office/back-office.Yes you do have a realistic chance of getting a front office position. The real question is do you want one?
