Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

USD is Hiring

Posted by Mike Shulman

The University of San Diego mathematics department is hiring! We have two assistant professor positions open this year; these are starting tenure-track positions. Applications must be through the USD web site; the deadline is November 15, 2021.

The University of San Diego (not to be confused with the University of California, San Diego) is a relatively small private Catholic university. The university as a whole has a few graduate programs in different academic units, but the math department is in the College of Arts and Sciences, which is a purely undergraduate liberal arts college. The standard teaching expectation is 3 courses per semester on average, although internal or external grants can reduce that a bit. It’s not a place to work unless you love undergraduate teaching as well as research. But for those who do, I think it’s a great place that supports both, with an administration and colleagues who care about both.

Because our focus is primarily on teaching, we don’t generally look for any particular research areas when hiring; but of course I would personally be happy to see applications from any nn-Category Café patrons. In addition, this year all hires in the university are supposed to align with one of three “cluster themes” of “Climate Change & Environmental Justice”, “Technology & the Human Experience”, and “Borders & Social Justice”; applicants must include a cover letter explaining how their work aligns with one or more of these clusters, broadly interpreted.

Feel free to contact me personally with any questions.
