The candidate will conduct theoretical research on mathematical aspects of superstring theories. He or she will collaborate with the members of the TopStringDT research team, whose goal is to obtain structural and quantitative results on micro-states of
BPS black holes in compactifications on Calabi-Yau manifolds, and their relationshop with topological string amplitudes.
1) Develop new methods for computing the BPS spectrum of string models and quantum field theories with extended supersymmetry
2) Study and exploit the modular properties of generating series of BPS indices
3) Study their relationship with the topological string partition function
The candidate should possess a solid grasp of the various types of superstring models and associated supergravity theories. Working knowledge of mathematical concepts useful for the project (derived categories, Donaldson-Thomas invariants, modular and mock-modular functions, ...) as well as mastery of computer algebra tools (Mathematica, Maple, Sage, ...) ) will be particularly appreciated. The qualities of analysis and oral presentation will be decisive.
This position falls under the TopStringDT project funded by the ANR (2021-2024), which involves researchers from LPTHE (supervised by Boris Pioline) and from LPENS (co-supervised by Amir Kashani- Poor). The candidate will be hosted by LPTHE during the first two years of the contract, and by LPENS during the last year of the contract. Beyond the TopStringDT research team, he or she will be in contact with other researchers in theoretical high energy physics and string theories at LPTHE and LPENS, as well as with several mathematicians from Paris area who work on similar subjects.
