PhD position (3.5 years) in Mathematical Physics/String Theory

At Heriot-Watt University

There is an opening for a PhD position in Mathematical Physics in the project "The Mathematics of M5-Branes". The position is for 3.5 years and some background in quantum field theory, supersymmetry, supergravity and a strong interest in Mathematics are helpful.

Inquiries about the positions and applications (the latter preferably as a single pdf-file) should be directed to c.saemann@hw.ac.uk. An application email should include a cover letter and a CV with a transcript of attended lectures. The candidate should also have at least two letters of recommendation sent directly to me via email.
