Fall Jobs Post

Time again for the annual fall jobs post. As always the best places to look for academic CS positions are the job sites at the CRA and the ACM. Also check out the postdoc and other opportunities on the Theory Announcements site. It never hurts to check out the webpages of departments you might want to be at or to contact people to see if positions are available.

I encourage everyone who has a job to offer in theoretical computer science at any level to post links in the comments.

With computer science enrollments expanding and the economy slowing recovering, I'm expecting quite an increase in the number of tenure-track jobs in computer science this year. On the other hand I'm expecting a decrease in the number of new postdoc positions though maybe more overseas.

Good luck to everyone in the market.
