Fuchs received his doctorate from Heidelberg University in 1985 . He was a post-doc at Princeton University . In 1992 he was at CERN (and again in 1998/99) and at NIKHEF in Amsterdam . In 1997/98 he was at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn and in 1999 at the ETH Zurich . Since 2000 he has been a professor at the Swedish University of Karlstad . Among other things, he was visiting scholar at the University of Hamburg , the Erwin Schrödinger Institute for Mathematical Physics , the University of Paris VI and theUniversity of Oslo .
Fuchs deals with mathematical physics, in particular with conformal field theory and infinitely dimensional Lie algebras (Kac-Moody algebras), about which he wrote two monographs.
From 1992 to 1997 he was a Heisenberg fellow from the German Research Foundation.
