"From conformal loop ensembles to conformal field theory"
home page of Dr.
Under the EPSRC grant
EP/H051619/1, I am
looking for one post-doctoral
assistant for a period of one year, to start anytime before 23
The project is concerned with establishing a connection between
conformal loop ensembles (CLE) and conformal field theory (CFT). In
particular, the research assistant will help in generalising in various
directions the work , about the
construction of the stress-energy tensor in CLE.
A knowledge of fundamental notions of CFT (e.g. chapters 1-7
of "Conformal Field Theory" by Di Francesco, Mathieu,
Sénéchal), of Schramm-Loewner evolution
(e.g. Cardy, cond-mat/0503313
and references therein),
of measure and probabily theory (e.g. chapters 1-5 and
9 of "Measure Theory" by Halmos) will be necessary. Some familiarity
with conformal loop ensembles [Werner math.PR/0511268, math.PR/0511605;
as well as recent developments in this
context [21,22] would be useful. The project
will give the assistant the opportunity to learn more about these
Besides the standard salary for post-doctoral assistants at KCL (grade
6, spine point 33, including a London allowance), the assistant will
have access to travel money for conferences. She/he will also be
intereract with the theoretical
physics group at King's
College London, as well as
with other groups of the department
of mathematics. These include, in particular, world-leading
researchers in CFT,
string theory, geometry and analysis.
