The string theory group is now part of CEICO,
the newly established Central European Institute for Cosmology and Fundamental Physics.
The new string theory group webpages can be found here.
Our string theory group is mostly interested in string field theory, conformal field theory, black hole physics, holography in quantum gravity and soon also in higher spin field theories. For more information on our research interests click here.
Past and future members:
Dario Francia (till September, 2011)
Miroslav Rapčák (now at Perimeter Inst.)
At the moment we several postdoctoral openings starting in 2017 (flexible). The application deadline is February 15th, 2017 and the instructions can be found here.
Source of funding:
Presently, the members of the group are funded mostly through EU operation program for science, research and innovation, project CoGraDS, No. CZ.02.1.01/0.0/0.0/15_003/0000437. Additionally also by the Eduard Čech Institute for Algebra, Geometry and Physics within the scheme Projects of Excellence in Basic Research GAČR P201/12/G028 and via the Symmetries in string theory and conformal field theory grant from GAČR No. 17-22899S.
In the past (2008-2013) the group's research was funded by the 2007 European Young Investigator Award from EUROHORC's and ESF. It came via the Grant Agency of Czech Republic, contract number GAČR EYI/07/E010. Other past resources notably from GAČR are acknowledged too.
