Please note that a full professor position in mathematics (analysis) is currently open at the university of Luxembourg. "Examples of research directions are geometric analysis, non-commutative harmonic analysis, PDEs on manifolds, index theory (including analytic aspects of non-commutative geometry), microlocal methods."

The position is quite attractive by international standards and might well interest some mathematicians already holding a full position at another institution.

Please forward to any potential candidate.

Those guys wrote a first preprint where they tried to predict the results of the British peer-review based departmental evaluation process (REF for Research Excellence Framework) using departmental h-indices. Then they wrote this second preprint to assess the result of their experiment. It failled. Apparently, using citation-based indices has limits, even at the departmental (rather than individual) level. Not so surprising, but still interesting to have data.
Abstract: We revisit our recent study [Predicting results of the Research Excellence Framework using departmental h-index, Scientometrics, 2014, 1-16; arXiv:1411.1996] in which we attempted to predict outcomes of the UK's Research Excellence Framework (REF~2014) using the so-called departmental ...

Technology Review has a full report on online learning, with a dozen articles. The focus is turning away from helping student learn, to getting data on the way they learn to help teach them in other, offline ways. And who knows what else could be done with this data...
Technologists and venture capitalists are betting that the data online learning generates will reshape education.

Good news (perhaps): according to this analysis, the number of autism cases is not increasing nearly as much as the number of reported cases.
Study argues that an uptick in cases in schools is mostly caused by changing diagnoses

For those getting tired of University politics in the US, or in Europe -- bigger questions concerning universities in India.
This is not the first time that a ruling Indian government has interfered in academic matters. The record of noninterference of the previous Congress government was far from impeccable. And yet the extent of intervention has become both unprecedented and often politically extreme under the present regime.

Fascinating story.
 
Walter Pitts was used to being bullied. He’d been born into a tough family in Prohibition-era Detroit, where his father, a boiler-maker,…

Where do the big US state universities get their funding from? Answer in one picture.

Another timely reminder that economics is far too serious to be left to the economists.

Are trees our best friends?
"The Toronto data shows a similar link between tree cover and cardio-metabolic conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. For the people suffering from these conditions, an extra eleven trees per block corresponds to an income boost of twenty thousand dollars, or being almost one and a half years younger."
A new study found that an additional ten trees on a given block corresponded to a one-per-cent increase in how healthy nearby residents felt. Credit Illustration by Tim Lahan

Perhaps a good analysis of the greek crisis, as seen from the point of view of game theory -- and how this approach can fail hopelessly when the assumptions it is based on are wrong.
Was Yanis Varoufakis's strategy built on persuading people that he was insane?

No he wasn't pretending to be mad. He just saw the way things were going and said "fuck it!"

"A new study finds that two common drugs—an antidepressant and a treatment for Parkinson’s disease—can influence moral decisions."
Not so surprising in view of recent related news, but still interesting.
Serotonin and dopamine drugs may change willingness to inflict harm on self and others
