Talk:Mathematics Jobs Wiki 2009-2010
Appropriateness of extracting information from talk schedules
So, I have a question about how much of a "rumor" mill this wiki is. For example, the job at Northeastern University, there is a series of "special talk"s  organized at NU by the chair of the hiring committee. Most likely these talks represent their short list. Should these names be added to that job? 184.108.40.206 04:45, 20 January 2010 (PST)
- Yes, These names should be added in.
- Also, if the information is available on a public website, it is useful to add a link to that on the wiki page, not just in the discussion or the change log. Another Wiki Nonmoderator 16:35, 24 January 2010 (PST)
Distinction between research page and teaching page
What exactly should be our criteria in determining which positions to list on the research page and which to list on the teaching page? In particular, should we only consider the emphasis of the department, or should we also consider the emphasis of the position? The Preceptor position at Harvard and the teaching postdoc/lecturer position at Arizona are currently listed on both pages. These departments are clearly research focused, but these positions are nevertheless clearly teaching focused. What's the best place to list these types of jobs? --Applicant 12:04, 2 February 2010 (PST)
What was the Courant April Fools thing about?
Just to clarify, this was an *applicant* at Courant playing an April Fool's joke on someone. Courant itself did no such thing.
Should CNRS positions be listed here? If so, how? Note that preliminary offers are put on the web by the French state weeks before the successful candidates are told *where* they are being made an offer - this makes the current format a bit tricky. Garald 02:04, 12 May 2010 (PDT)
- Absolutely, this would be a great contribution. You can add an extra section for France (we used to have one in 2008/09) and use whatever format may seem appropriate. Another Wiki Nonmoderator 11:48, 3 June 2010 (PDT)
Why is University of Alabama searching for analysis while the other U.S. schools are searching for anal? Is that still illegal in Alabama?
No, Alabama's law was overturned by Lawrence v. Texas. Alabamans have a legal right to practice analysis.
