My impression is that in the US, there is a canonical place for finding math jobs, namely mathjobs.org. For those of us who live and apply for jobs elsewhere, life is more complicated, and searching for advertised academic mathematics jobs for example in Europe can be a real hassle, with loads of different sites, different systems, and some jobs apparently advertised only on the web page of the hiring institution, or one some obscure mailing list.

So, where are academic math jobs advertised when they for some reason are not or cannot be on mathjobs.org? Of course I know of a few such places, but I am sure there must be many more.

All answers welcome, this would help me and probably many others.

Actually, the canonical place for finding math jobs in the US is the AMS Employment Information page. This is much older than MathJobs.org, and I still think notably more complete for more obscure jobs (and actually has quite a few foreign jobs), though MathJobs.org adoption is moving fast.

  • The MAA has added mathclassifieds.org Unlike the AMS sites which are mostly geared towards phds, it tries to gather math jobs for all educational levels. – Thierry Zell Aug 27 '10 at 11:47

The European Mathematical Society has this list of national job advertisements on its site.

http://www.jobs.ac.uk/jobs/mathematics

Not complete, but occasionally useful.

    I'd say it's a lot more than "occasionally useful" if you're looking for jobs in the UK. My impression is that for several years now, very nearly every UK mathematics job has been advertised on jobs.ac.uk. They also have a mailing list you can subscribe to. – Tom Leinster Nov 2 '09 at 11:06

    I agree with Tom, I've always found jobs.ac.uk pretty much complete, the only exceptions being obscure Oxbridge fellowships. These are advertised in the Oxford Gazette and Cambridge Reporter (though good luck finding your way around their appalling websites!). – James Griffin Aug 27 '10 at 13:03

There is the Mathematics Jobs Wiki:

http://notable.math.ucdavis.edu/wiki/Mathematics_Jobs_Wiki

It is a wiki, so what is listed there is dependent on people bothering to put stuff up. It is trying to be international in scope -- in fact, the only jobs that seem to be listed on it at the moment are from Germany.

Also, for Canada: http://www.cms.math.ca/Employment/

The math jobs wiki has been updated to list a lot of jobs in the US and Canada. Even before it was updated, it had a fairly complete collection of links to jobs pages at the bottom. It had every link listed here, and others.

    the math jobs wiki seems to have been down for a while now. Is this permanent or will it come back online at some point? – Tobias Fritz Sep 23 '13 at 16:30

    I will put it back up soon. – Greg Kuperberg Sep 24 '13 at 10:56

http://www.math-jobs.com/ has quite some European jobs available.

For jobs in France, the one site you need is Opération Postes.

In Australian and New Zealand, go to http://www.austms.org.au/Jobs/
For more statistical jobs, look at http://www.statsci.org/jobs

Germany (and Europe in general): http://www.academics.de/

Another site for jobs in the UK & Ireland is http://www.lms.ac.uk/jobs/index.html

Jobs at Oxford and Cambridge are often advertised in the Oxford Gazette http://www.ox.ac.uk/gazette/ and the Cambridge reporter http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/reporter/
