Founded in 1894, City, University of London is a global university committed to academic excellence with a focus on business and the professions and an enviable central London location.

City attracts around 20,000 students (over 40% at postgraduate level), from more than 150 countries and staff from over 75 countries.

In the last decade City has almost tripled the proportion of its total academic staff producing world-leading or internationally excellent research. During this period City has made significant investments in its academic staff, its estate and its infrastructure and continues to work towards realising its vision of being a leading global university.

Background

This position is in the Theoretical Physics group of the Mathematics Department. Our STFC-funded group consists of Valentina Forini, Yang-Hui He and Bogdan Stefanski and is part of the larger Mathematical Physics area of research carried out in the Mathematics Department, whose other members are Olalla Castro-Alvaredo, Andreas Fring and Alessandro de Martino.

The Theoretical Physics group carries out research in gauge theory, string theory and holography as well as applications of computational and exact methods in string phenomenology. Stefanski’s work is focussed on the gauge/string correspondence particularly in low-supersymmetry settings using exact integrability. He’s expertise include low-supersymmetry gauge theories, the relation between stringy phenomenology and algebraic geometry, and pioneering use of Machine Learning in the String Landscape. Forini works on quantization of superstrings in holography, using perturbative and nonperturbative methods which include lattice field theory (LFT).

We play an active role in the wider London Theoretical Physics community, such as co-hosting the London Triangle seminar series, co-founding the London Theory Institute (LonTI) or through the London Institute for Mathematical Sciences (LIMS).

Responsibilities

The position is for a two-year Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Theoretical Physics group.
