Position ID: MR-ASSOCEDIT [#10667]
Position Title: Associate Editor - Editorial Department
Position Type: Other
Position Location: Ann Arbor, Michigan 48103, United States [map]
Application Deadline: (posted 2017/09/11, updated 2017/09/07, listed until 2018/03/07)
Position Description:    

Applications are invited for a full-time position as an Associate Editor for Mathematical Reviews/MathSciNet to commence as early as possible in late spring/early summer 2018. We also welcome applications from suitably qualified candidates interested in spending a sabbatical year from their institution in the position and continuing as an editor working remotely under contract afterwards. Mathematical Reviews (MR) founded in 1940, is a division of the American Mathematical Society (AMS), located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in a beautiful, historic building close to the campus of the University of Michigan. MR is an association of professional mathematicians dedicated to the interests of mathematical research and scholarship. MR has a staff of over 80 and serves researchers and scholars in the mathematical sciences by providing timely information on peer-reviewed articles and books, published online as MathSciNet.  MR’s mission is to develop and maintain the MR Database from which MathSciNet is produced.  The editors are employees of the AMS; they also enjoy certain privileges at the University. 


An Associate Editor is responsible for broad areas of the mathematical sciences.  Editors select articles and books for coverage, classify these items, determine the type of coverage, assign selected items for review to reviewers, and edit the reviews on their return.


The successful applicant will have mathematical breadth with an interest in current developments, and will be willing to learn new topics in pure and applied mathematics.  In particular, we are looking for an applicant with expertise in algebra and an interest in a range of algebraic topics, such as representation theory, nonassociative algebras, and group theory. The ability to write well in English is essential.  The applicant should normally have several years of relevant academic (or equivalent) experience beyond the Ph.D.  Evidence of written scholarship in mathematics is expected.  The twelve-month salary will be commensurate with the experience that the applicant brings to the position. 


The AMS offers excellent benefits, including competitive salaries, health and dental; very generous retirement contributions and paid leave; paid life insurance; a casual, collegial work environment; tuition assistance; computing benefit; as well as professional development opportunities.  We are an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.


Applications should include the following: a cover letter; curriculum vitae; list of publications; and at least three references.

Confidential inquiries may be sent directly to:
