February 5, 2017: Postdoc, Bath

A 3.5-year postdoc position (RA) in Geometry is available at the University of Bath. The position is funded as part of the “Simons Foundation Collaboration on Special Holonomy in Geometry, Analysis and Physics”.

The Collaboration consists of 10 Principal Investigators around the world and a larger group of academics, postdocs and PhD students, who will work together on the study of Riemannian manifolds with special holonomy, particularly Calabi-Yau manifolds and 7- and 8-manifolds with holonomy G_2 and Spin(7), their calibrated submanifolds, and gauge theory and instantons on them, and their connections with String and M-theory. The Collaboration website is at https://sites.duke.edu/scshgap/.

The RA will work directly with Johannes Nordström on projects in the broad areas of the Collaboration, and within Dr Nordström’s research interests.
