The Research Horizons seminar this week will be a panel discussion on the academic job market for mathematicians. The discussion will begin with an overview by Doug Ulmer of the hiring process, with a focus on the case of research-oriented universities. The panel will then take questions from the audience. Professor Wick was hired last year at Tech, so has recently been on the students' side of the process. Professor Harrell has been involved with hiring at Tech for many years and can provide a perspective on the university side of the process.
