Also, regardless of whether the job is FO/BO, would it be a good part time job for a sophomore?

Most people would agree it's MO, although it's a lot closer to being FO than it is BO.

It's a pretty solid gig, would definitely look good on your CV and you'll learn quite a bit about trading.
Obviously there are better roles but it's still a good one to go with.

Edit: Re-read the post cause I thought the two below comments were a bit odd, but they're correct. I misread the bullet-points, at my firm "Rates trading support" is a lot closer to FO than that and actually active in the trading process. This job seems a lot more admin.
Still not a terrible opportunity, especially if you can network with the S&T teams.

This is back office. If you're not part of the decision process that helps drive revenue. That being said if you're a sophomore this is a great opportunity to put something on the resume. Just be sure to come up with a good story on why it wasn't for you and what you took away when you took this position.

It's BO but looks like a good op. It sounds like the finance division of the trading desk.
