CS Visiting Professor Search
The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science invites applications, subject to final funding approval, for a one-year full-time visiting position in Computer Science beginning mid-August 2012. Outstanding candidates in all areas will be considered. We are particularly interested in candidates who can teach courses in database systems, artificial intelligence, or software engineering.
A strong commitment to teaching excellence is required. The position may be of interest to sabbatical visitors or recent Ph.D. recipients seeking teaching experience. The teaching load is 3-4 courses for the academic year. Candidates should have completed their Ph.D. requirements in computer science or a closely related field by August 15th, 2012.
Applicants should send a cover letter, CV, teaching and research statements. Concurrently, please arrange for three references (at least one evaluating teaching) to be sent directly to the committee.
Materials should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Informal inquiries are also welcome. Screening starts March 20, 2012 and will continue until the position is filled.
Emory University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and welcomes applications from women and members of minority groups.
Number theory paper honored as an Archiv der Mathematik Distinguished Article
Birkhauser-Verlag, the publisher of Archiv der Mathematik recognizes unusually distinguished articles according to their scientific value and their interest to a general mathematical readership. The recent paper by Ken Ono, Asa Griggs Candler Professor, and his colleague Nick Ramsey (DePaul University) entitled "A mod L Atkin-Lehner theorem and applications" has been awarded this distinction. The paper is expected to have wide ranging consequences in the theory of modular forms and number theory.
Lecture Series in Combinatorics & Graph Theory

Emory Student awarded an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship
Michael Griffin, a first year Emory PhD student, has been awarded a prestigious National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. Michael will use his fellowship to support his research in Number Theory. Michael, who recently graduated from Brigham Young University, also is a recipient of the National Physical Sciences Consortium Fellowship.
Emory REU student named a 2012 Marshall Scholar
Alex Carney, a participant in Professor Ono's 2011 Emory NSF Research Experience in Number Theory, has been named a George C. Marshall Scholar. Alex, a senior at the University of Michigan will use the scholarship for his graduate studies at Cambridge University. Alex, together with Emory students Anastassia Etropolski and Sarah Pitman, wrote a paper in number theory which has been accepted for publication in the International Journal of Number Theory. Professor Ono will be running an REU in 2012. For more information, see http://www.mathcs.emory.edu/~ono/REUs/
