Dear Don,
will you please post the following message to the list.

POSITIONS IN ABERDEEN
the department of mathematical sciences in the University of Aberdeen is
currently advertising two positions in pure mathematics. The application
is open to researchers in all mathematical subjects, but at least one of
these positions is likely to go to a topologist. The following paragraph
is a short (and a bit formal) description of the department. The one
after is the formal advertisment of the positions.
Description of the Department.
The Department has an academic teaching staff of 15, including two
professors in pure mathematics, one in applied and one in statistics.
The current Head of Department is Professor R.J.Archbold. The research
interests of most staff lie in pure mathematics (topology, geometry and
operator algebras), with smaller groups in computer imaging, relativity
theory and statistics. Strong links exist between the research groups
and universities and research institutes worldwide, resulting in regular
interchanges of research visitors. The Research Centre in Topology and
Related areas, director Dr.Ran Levi, currently has six members of the
teaching staff, three research fellows and four PhD students.
The department has excellent computing facilities and a full-time
Computing Officer.

UNIVERSITY OF ABERDEEN
TWO LECTURESHIPS in PURE MATHEMATICS
£20,470 -- £32,537 per
annum
Applications are invited for two lectureships in the DEPARTMENT OF
MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES. At least one of these appointments may be made
at
a higher level for a suitably qualified candidate. The Department
gained a Grade 5 rating in Pure Mathematics in the 2001 UK Research
Assessment
Exercise and it contains a Research Centre for Topology and Related
Areas. The successful candidates will be expected to play a major role
in the development of research in Pure Mathematics and to contribute to
teaching and supervision at all levels. Preference may be given to
applicants whose research activities relate to those of the current
researchers in topology, geometry and analysis, but candidates with a
strong research record in any area of Pure Mathematics are encouraged to
apply. Informal enquiries are welcome and should be directed either to
Prof. Robert Archbold (Head of Mathematical Sciences, tel. 01224 272756,
email: r.archbold@maths.abdn.ac.uk) or to Professor John Hubbuck (tel.
01224 272757, email: j.hubbuck@maths.abdn.ac.uk).
Further information may be obtained at the Web
site: http://www.maths.abdn.ac.uk. Application forms and further
particulars are available from Human Resources, University of Aberdeen,
King’s College, ABERDEEN AB24 3FX, telephone (01224) 272727, quoting
reference number FMA030A A 24-hour answering service is in operation.
