PhD Position in Theoretical High Energy Physics

A PhD position in Theoretical High Energy Physics will be available with starting date between Oct 1st, and December 1st, 2014. The position is for three years and is associated to a Sapere Aude project entitled "Integrability and Beyond" directed by Charlotte Fløe Kristjansen, and funded jointly by the Danish Council for Independent Research and the Niels Bohr Institute.

The project theme is "particles versus strings in theoretical high energy and condensed matter physics". A major objective is to investigate various probe Dp-brane models and their dual defect conformal field theories with the aim of calculating observables of relevance for strongly coupled condensed matter systems. Furthermore, the possible role of integrability for such models will be analysed.

The successful candidate must hold a master degree in theoretical physics and have a good knowledge of quantum field theory, string theory and gravity. Some knowledge of the AdS/CFT correspondence and of integrability will be considered an advantage.

The PhD student will be member of the Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology group. PhD students form an integral part of the group, are expected to participate actively in all scientific activities (seminars, journal clubs, workshops etc.) and are also involved in other tasks, such as teaching exercise classes and maintaining our webpage. There are many possibilities for further advanced education. A number of advanced courses is regularly given (e.g. Advanced Quantum Field Theory, Advanced String Theory, Black Hole Physics, The AdS/CFT correspondence, Quantum Geometry). There is also support to participate in international PhD schools.

Application deadline: September 10th, 2014.
