Candidates with solid experience in quantum and/or conformal field theory and interested in the bootstrap, critical phenomena, integrable systems, and/or renormalization group are encouraged to apply.

Contact: Slava Rychkov, Vasily Pestun

– 1 postion in theoretical biology

The candidate should have a background in biology and be interested in addressing theoretical questions in biology as well as an interest in interaction with mathematicians and physicists.

The main scope of the work includes mathematical formalization of biological problems, and analytical literature mining aimed at conceptualizing available experimental data. Among topics currently pursued in our group are cell fate
decisions in normal and cancer tissues and pattern formation in morphogenesis.
