University of Calgary – Position Announcement

The University of Calgary invites applications for a tenure track position at the Assistant Professor level in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, beginning July 1, 2006. A later starting date may be negotiated.

The Department is seeking an outstanding candidate with research expertise in one of the following four categories:
