Quant internships - what are the keywords?


Hey guys,

I am looking for possible internship positions in the area of QF. I don't know whether the reason is that the terminology in Germany is different, but I struggle to find something which can be clearly distinguished from standard corporate finance internship positions. Therefore, I would like to ask you if there are any keywords/buzzwords which are quite typical for quant internship position.

Thanks in advance!
