European Research Council funded fellowship The structure of the extra dimensions of string theory

Please note that the job is no longer active!

string theory predicts the existence of spatial dimensions in addition to the three of our everyday experience; the space spanned by these dimensions might be small enough to have escaped detection so far. The aim of this project is to characterize which spaces are allowed by the dynamics of the theory, and what physics they give rise to. More specifically, the aim is to reformulate supersymmetry in terms of differential forms, and to apply such a reformulation to problems such as supersymmetry breaking and the cosmological constant.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
