Job offer from September 01, 2017
***** To whom it may concern *******
In connection with the new ERC project "Exceptional Quantum Gravity" (Principal Investigator: Hermann Nicolai) we expect to be able to fill 2-3 postdoc positions, to start any time in 2018. These positions would be initially for two years, with the possibility of an extension, depending on performance. The main scientific focus of the project will be on the following topics:
-- Applications of indefinite and especially hyperbolic Kac-Moody algebras in quantum gravity and quantum supergravity
-- Involutory subalgebras of Kac--Moody algebras and their representation theory with particular attention to fermionic representations
-- Exceptional geometry and exceptional field theory
-- Infinite dimensional duality symmetries and quantum cosmology
-- Effective actions and generalized automorphic forms
-- Exceptional symmetries and the unification of fundamental interactions
Applications must be submitted on-line via this form. The application deadline is 1 Dec 2017. In addition to their CV with list of publications and three reference letters, applicants should supply a short research statement detailing their specific qualifications for this particular ERC project.
The Max Planck Society values diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity.
Therefore we would particularly welcome applications from the relevant group of potential candidates.
