The Math Academic Job Search

In my last semester at the University of Arizona in the Math PhD program, I gave a talk in the Math Grad Colloquium about searching for an academic job in math. Having just recently (successfully) completed such a search, I felt compelled to share my wisdom (mistakes) with others about to do the same. At the request of Suz Tolwinski, a current grad student in the applied math program at the U of A, I dug up the slides from that talk. I then decided to post the slides on the web at my Slideshare for the whole world wide web to ignore.

Most likely, some information is out of date. You have been warned.

  1. Just an additional thought. If it’s applicable, when you’ve been offered a job, ask about support for partners looking for work, etc. This will probably only be necessary for very rural positions assuming that you’ve GOT a partner 😉
