The topic of the project is
in two-dimensional conformal field theory", and it
is lead by Volker Schomerus, Jörg Teschner and myself.
Candidates should have an interest in mathematical physics, for example
in mathematical questions relating to conformal or topological field
theory, integrable systems or string theory.
Hamburg offers an excellent research environment in
mathematical physics, there are many joint
activities of the Mathematics Department, the Theoretical Physics group
and the DESY theory group,
see the web pages of the
Centre for Mathematical Physics.
In addition, the University offers a Masters programme "Mathematical Physics"
with interesting lectures and seminars.
The conditions of employment and the application procedure are described in
