Investment Analysts work directly with senior staff, meet and interact with some of the world’s leading investment managers, and help identify Yale’s next investment opportunities. Analysts enjoy early responsibility and have a seat at the table from day one. Most Directors at the Yale Investments Office started off as Investment Analysts, rising through the organization’s ranks. In addition, past Analysts have gone on to work full-time with Yale’s hedge fund, venture capital, and foreign equity managers.

We are looking for Investment Analysts with excellent analytical abilities and writing skills as well as a sense of humor. All majors are encouraged to apply.
