Hi all.  

I've been lurking and posting on this list for a few years now.  Prior to that, I managed the US Convertible Arbitrage portfolio for Amaranth Advisors.  I recently agreed to manage a similar portfolio for a different hedge fund and am looking for someone to join me, essentially as the principal quant for a new San Francisco office.  I've been very impressed with the posters on this list and am hopeful that some of you will consider submitting your resume for the position.

The job announcement follows.

(My apologies for posting in both sig-finance and devel -- finance experience is not mandatory)

You will also be responsible for analyzing market data to identify trade opportunities as well as promising hedging strategies.
