Welcome to the Mathematics Jobs Wiki 2008-2009. This page collects rumors and authoritative information about the academic mathematics job market: positions, short lists, offers, acceptances, etc. This year we are listing PhD-granting departments (listed here), including statistics and applied mathematics; we are also listing positions that are research-oriented by other reasonable criteria (to be discussed on the talk page). Please see the teaching page for listings for teaching-oriented math departments (some of which may have interesting research).

If you would like to post news or corrections anonymously, you can send information by e-mail to the wiki moderator at Or you can post information with a name or IP number by editing this page yourself. Or you can discuss the math job market and this page on an independent discussion board.
