The Amsterdam String Theory Group is one of the largest and most prominent groups in the world. It consists of faculty members Daniel Baumann, Jan de Boer, Alejandra Castro, Miranda Cheng, Diego Hofman, Ben Freivogel, Jan Pieter van der Schaar, Erik Verlinde and Marcel Vonk, along with many visiting faculty, post-doctoral researchers and PhD candidates.
The group's research interests are diverse and extend across all of string theory, including AdS/CFT and its applications, string cosmology, emergent gravity and mathematical aspects of string theory. There is a stimulating atmosphere in the group, a diverse range of nationalities, and an active visitor program which attracts the best string theorists from all over the world.
We always encourage young and talented researchers to join our group. Please see our PhD and postdoc vacancies or seek contact with any of our current members if you are interested to join.
