The Department of Mathematics at Stockholm University invites
applications for PhD positions in Computational Mathematics. A
prospective student will have the opportunity to engage in exciting
research related to type theory, HoTT/UF, constructive mathematics,
programming language theory and category theoretic foundations.

The student will be part of the newly founded Computational
Mathematics division. It will also be possible to collaborate with
other groups in the department, such as the Mathematical Logic group
(with experts on constructive mathematics and type theory like Per
Martin-Löf and Peter LeFanu Lumsdaine) and the Algebra, Geometry,
Topology, and Combinatorics group.

For further information and instructions on how to apply see

https://www.su.se/english/about/working-at-su/phd?rmpage=job&rmjob=11944&rmlang=UK

The deadline for application is April 23, 2020.

Some potential project ideas can be found at

If you are now an $n$-dimensional creature in an $m$-dimensional universe, what kind of entertainment / political system is available?

E.g., dancing is possible in this universe as this universe is of 3-spacial dimensional, but might be unavailable in other dimensional universes, i.e., there may be no gravitational force in other dimensional universes;
authoritarian regime is THE only available possible political system in a $2$-dimensional universe, e.g., video games such as Starcraft, but democracy [and the US adaptation of democracy] is available [possible] in this universe as this universe is of $3$-spacial dimensional.
