Theory Jobs 2017

In the fall we point to theory jobs, in the spring we see who got them. Like last year and years past I created a fully editable Google Spreadsheet to crowd source who is going where. Ground rules:
  • I set up separate sheets for faculty, industry and postdoc/visitors.
  • People should be connected to theoretical computer science, broadly defined.
  • Only add jobs that you are absolutely sure have been offered and accepted. This is not the place for speculation and rumors.
  • You are welcome to add yourself, or people your department has hired.
This document will continue to grow as more jobs settle. So check it often.

    1. It looks like it is becoming trendy for people to do 2 half-postdocs at different locations.

  2. it's not so much trendiness, but rather due to semester-long research fellow positions at the simons institute (which are super comfy).

  4. It looks like a very strong market. Has there been upward salary pressure to match the demand? I know several private schools have been offering fresh PhDs 125-130k this cycle, and publics as high as 115-120k. Other anecdotal numbers?

    1. We're blocking speculative questions like "Why is person A moving to place B" or "Why did place B hire a person like A". We've had some ugly comments in the past related to these questions.

    2. Thanks for clarifying. This is understandable.
