The University of Chicago Department of Mathematics invites applications for the following positions:
1. L.E. Dickson Instructor
This is open to mathematicians who have recently completed or will soon complete a doctorate in mathematics or a closely related field, and whose work shows remarkable promise in mathematical research. The initial appointment is typically up to three years with the possibility of renewal. The teaching obligation is up to four one-quarter courses per year.
2. Assistant Professor
This is open to mathematicians who are further along in their careers, typically two or three years past the doctorate. These positions are intended for mathematicians whose work has been of outstandingly high caliber. Appointees are expected to have the potential to become leading figures in their fields. The appointment is generally for three years, with the possibility for renewal and a teaching obligation of up to three one-quarter courses per year.
Applicants will be considered for any of the positions above which seem appropriate. Complete applications consist of
- a cover letter,
- a curriculum vitae,
- three or more letters of reference, at least one of which addresses teaching ability, and
- a description of previous research and plans for future mathematical research.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to include information related to their teaching experience, such as a teaching statement or evaluations from courses previously taught, as well as an AMS cover sheet. If you have applied for an NSF Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Fellowship, please include that information in your application, and let us know how you plan to use it if awarded. Applications must be submitted online through www.mathjobs.org. Questions may be directed to email@example.com. We will begin screening applications on November 1, 2017. Screening will continue until all available positions are filled.

Who Was L.E. Dickson?
Leonard Eugene Dickson (1874-1957) received the first doctorate in Mathematics awarded by the University of Chicago, in 1896, and taught here from 1900 until his retirement in 1939. Dickson was a towering mathematician and extraordinary teacher. He directed more than fifty dissertations and wrote 270 papers and 18 books. His original research contributions made him a leading figure in the development of modern algebra.
