|Applications are invited for a full-time position as an Associate Editor of Mathematical Reviews/MathSciNet, to commence as soon as possible after July 1, 2014, preferably before September 1, 2014. The Mathematical Reviews (MR) division of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) is located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in a beautiful, historic building close to the campus of the University of Michigan. The editors are employees of the AMS; they also enjoy many privileges at the University. At present, the AMS employs over seventy people at Mathematical Reviews, including sixteen mathematical editors. MR’s mission is to develop and maintain the MR Database, from which MathSciNet is produced.
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, the applicant should have expertise in one or more of the following areas: algebra, geometry, number theory, topology. 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.
