Several companies (google, IBM etc.) are known to hire mathematicians with advanced degrees (Ph.D. and so) to work in different sectors; I mean mostly research oriented positions in industry but could be something else too. But I almost never find any such job advertisements in the standard mathjob sites I know of, including mathjobs.org, euro-math-soc.eu/jobs, nordic math jobs etc. Where can I find these type of job advertisements?

  • $\begingroup$ Deane Yang: I'll, but a problem I'm facing is I'm not sure which company is more relevant to my search. Otherwise, I've to go through pile of them and check them all individually. $\endgroup$ – Learning math May 28 '14 at 12:26

    $\begingroup$ I'm not sure I understand the votes to close. True, this is not a mathematics research question, but neither is the question about where to buy good chalk. Seriously: this is a question that I think many professionals, grad students, etc. would be interested in. $\endgroup$ – Todd Trimble May 28 '14 at 14:12

One of the best sources available now is the SIAM site:


This has quite a mix of jobs at various levels, but you will find research positions there as well.
