RTG: Algebraic Geometry and Representation Theory @ Northeastern

Independent Research Experience for Undergraduates.


Research Experience. The RTG group in Algebraic Geometry and Representation Theory invites applications for a Research Experience for Undergraduates at the Mathematics Department at Northeastern University. A PhD-student will mentor the selected applicants for two months in a research topic, under the supervision of a faculty member.

Candidates that are citizens, nationals, or permanent residents of the United States or its territories and possessions are eligible for a scholarship of $2,000 per month.

Fellowships for the current year have been already assigned. The list of students and mentors supported by the grant can be found here.

We will have a new round of applications in early Spring 2019.


A list of topics of interest in our group:

  • Derived categories and homological algebra,
  • Birational geometry and moduli spaces,
  • Hyperka╠łhler manifolds,
  • Moduli theory and enumerative invariants,
  • Hodge theory,
  • Mirror symmetry,
  • Geometric representation theory,
  • Representations of Lie groups and Lie algebras,
  • Quantum groups,
  • Symplectic and Poisson geometry,
  • Geometric quantization,
  • Quantum field theory and string theory,
  • Combinatorial Geometries,
  • Toric Varieties,
  • Arrangements of algebraic varieties.
