me too actually, I was just about to post a thread about AQR. Has anyone on WSO ever interviewed/interned/worked for AQR before? Do they hire undergrads for internships/FT positions, or are they inclined only towards candidates with grad school degrees in quantitative fields? Here is their website : http://www.aqrcapital.com/RecruitingHome.htm

Well I know that they recruit out of undergrad.

They're definitely not a fund of funds--they make principle equity investments using (mostly) stat-arb/quant models. Now, you could argue that some of their platforms are essentially small mutual funds in nature, but they definitely have a large hedge fund platform. Google Clif Asness, who's pretty well known in finance and an incredibly good communicator in general--he was the initial guy brought in to run Goldman Sachs Quant Strategies funds and actually let that post for Carhart and co. to pick up.

basically a mutual fund shop now. if you have a phd in econ they'll probably hire you and write about how many phds they have in their marketing materials
