Associate Editor

Probability / Statistics

Mathematical Reviews Editorial Department – Ann Arbor, MI

 Applications are invited for a full-time position as an Associate Editor for Mathematical Reviews/MathSciNet to commence in 2022.  In particular, we are looking for an applicant with expertise in probability and stochastic processes (MSC 60) or statistics (MSC 62).

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. The AMS is an association of professional mathematicians dedicated to the interests of mathematical research and scholarship. MR has a staff of 75, including 17 PhD mathematicians, and serves researchers and scholars in the mathematical sciences by providing timely information on peer-reviewed articles and books, published online as MathSciNet.  Mathematical Reviews’ 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 of Michigan. 

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 for mathematical content 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.  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. Benefits include travel funds, the opportunity for study leave (sabbatical), and a generous vacation policy.

The review of the applications is ongoing and will continue until the position is filled.  

Applications should include the following: a cover letter addressing the Associate Editor position, curriculum vitae, list of publications, three letters of recommendation. Applications should be submitted through MathJobs:

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.
