agree with ashkar. frankly you are not going to get an interview for quant researcher role. If I were the employer, I would be worried that this guy can't do vector calculus econometric modelling etc. I am not sure that a masters in stats would necc convince me that you had the required background [ eg did you just do the computational modules].[nor do I believe a PhD in ML would help.... ML is after all where the chain rule of differentiation was "invented" - backpropagation]there are just too few jobs and too many outstanding candidates. I think your best bet is to enter as a developer and hope you will get a chance to become a modelller.
