Mathematics Jobs Wiki 2008-2009
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 wikimod@gmail.com. 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.
There is no guarantee that any information listed here is accurate; no warranty is expressed or implied. This site is supported by an anonymous wiki moderator and by Greg Kuperberg (who is recused from reading e-mail to the wiki moderator).
