Are you interested in doing original research in String theory - A theory that unifies all particles and forces in nature, including gravity, in a way consistent with the laws of quantum mechanics and relativity?
String theory is the most promising theory that unifies all particles and forces in nature, including gravity, in a way consistent with the laws of quantum mechanics and relativity. String theory answers fundamental questions about the symmetries of nature, the quantum behavior of black holes, the existence and breaking of supersymmetry, and the quantum treatment of singularities. In string theory all the forces and particles emerge in an elegant geometrical way, realizing Einstein's ultimate dream of building everything from the geometry of space-time.
What are you going to do?
You are expected to perform research in string theory/cosmology.
A PhD in Theoretical Physics or an equivalent degree.
A temporary contract for 38 hours per week, for the duration of 2 years (with possible extension).
