Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Edinburgh is Hiring

Posted by Tom Leinster

We’re hiring!

The advertised positions are in “algebra, geometry and topology and related fields”. Category theory is specifically mentioned, as is the importance of glue:

The Hodge Institute is a large world-class group of mathematicians whose research interests lie in Algebra, Geometry and Topology and related fields such as Category Theory and Mathematical Physics. Applicants should demonstrate an outstanding research record and contribute to the productive and strong collaborative research environment in the Hodge Institute. Preference may be given to candidates who strengthen connections between different areas of research within the Hodge Institute or more broadly between the Hodge Institute and other parts of the School.

Here “School” refers to the School of Mathematics, and the Hodge Institute is just our name for the set of people within the School who work on the subjects mentioned.

We’re advertising for Lecturers or Readers. These are both permanent positions. Lecturer is where almost everyone starts, and Reader is more senior (the rough equivalent of a junior full professor in US terminology).
