|Emory Mathematics Fellows search now underway.|
|Published Date: 2011-10-27|
The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science seeks outstanding recent PhD graduates in Mathematics, for term appointments as Emory Fellows. These postdoctoral fellowships combine substantial independence with wide-ranging opportunities for professional development, and provide generous resources. Emory Fellowships are a central part of the department’s plan to enhance excellence at all levels. Fellows will have the chance to pursue research in conjunction with senior faculty members and graduate students, and will teach both undergraduate and graduate courses. Salaries are highly competitive. Fellows will also have access to research funds for travel, equipment and other expenses. Appointments are term-limited with an expected duration of two to three years, and are subject to final funding approval. For the 2012-2013 academic year, the department will consider candidates who specialize in an area of mathematics that is a focus of research within the department. More information on research emphases in the department can be found here.
We invite applications from outstanding junior scholars. Candidates must have (or soon receive) a PhD in a relevant discipline, demonstrate promise of exceptional research ability, and have a commitment to excellence in teaching. Applications consisting of a cover letter, CV, research and teaching statements, and three recommendation letters directly from recommenders should be submitted via mathjobs.org. In addition, applicants must specify a potential mentor and/or research group within the department. Women and underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to apply. Informal inquiries are also invited by email: firstname.lastname@example.org .
Screening begins January 1, 2012 and will continue until the positions are filled.
Emory University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and welcomes applications from women and members of minority groups.
|ACM Special Interest Group on Information Retrieval (SIGIR) “Best Paper” Award|
|Published Date: 2011-08-08|
This year's ACM Special Interest Group on Information Retrieval (SIGIR) annual conference best paper award was presented to Mikhail Ageev (Moscow State University), and Qi Guo, Dmitry Lagun, and Eugene Agichtein (Emory University), for their paper "Find It If You Can: A Game for Modeling Different Types of Web Search Success Using Interaction Data". The paper, written while Mikhail was visiting the IR Lab at Emory, proposes a principled formalization of different types of success for informational search, and it presents a scalable game-like infrastructure for crowdsourcing search behavior studies. The SIGIR annual conference is the premier conference in information retrieval. This year, the rate of acceptance for submitted papers was 19.8%. More details on the conference and award can be found on the SIGIR website:
