The Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS) has just announced that Louigi Addario-Berry (Probability lab member) and Eyal Goren have been appointed as the incoming Editors-in-Chief of the Canadian Journal of Mathematics (CJM). The CMS announcement praised both as “leading researchers in their fields who have the editorial skills and vision to steer this journal through the current climate of change and uncertainty in the publishing sector and at the same time maintain, if not increase, the journal’s standing as one of the world’s best mathematics journals.” For more information see: https://cms.math.ca/MediaReleases/2017/CJM-EICs.html
This post is to highlight a tenure-track position in probability at McGill University (here or on Mathjobs; ID 9179). The department will begin reviewing applications on October 31, and will continue until the position is filled. Strong probabilists interested in making their home in Montreal are encouraged to apply.
The Montreal Probability Group is proud to announce that Louigi Addario-Berry is the recipient of the 2016 Coxeter-James Prize for his outstanding contributions to mathematical research. Louigi Addario-Berry works at the interface of probability and combinatorics, and “has emerged as one of the leaders of his generation in the area of discrete probability” one referee said.
The Coxeter-James Prize was inaugurated in 1978 to recognize young mathematicians who have made outstanding contributions to mathematical research. The award is named on behalf of two former CMS presidents, Donald Coxeter, who is recognized as one of the world’s best geometers, and Ralph Duncan James, who was a great contributor to mathematical development in Canada. Other probabilist who have won this award in the past include: Gordon Slade (UBC) and Balint Vorag (U of Toronto).

The McGill departments of physics and of mathematics and statistics are jointly advertising a tenure-track position in Mathematical Physics. The emphasis is on string theory, but all excellent candidates working in areas related to mathematical physics are encouraged to apply. More senior appointments will also be considered.
