Postdoctoral position

The mathematics department at Cambridge is advertising a number of postdoctoral positions. One of them, which lasts for two and a half years, is to work with me in additive and/or extremal combinatorics. The ideal candidate would be someone who would be interested in interacting with me and with others in the discrete analysis group at Cambridge, which is now quite numerous, and who also has a clear research programme of their own. If you know of somebody who might be suitable, it would be great if you could encourage them to apply (unless that person is you yourself, in which case just applying would be sufficient).

If you think that something isn't quite right about Elsevier being chosen by the EU to monitor Open Science, there is still time to add your name to a list of signatories denouncing the decision. You don't have to be from the EU. Details about what exactly the complaint is can be found in the document.

A group of us are setting up a new combinatorics journal. The aim is to provide an ethical alternative for papers at the level of the top specialist journals (such as Combinatorica), where "ethical" means that there are no charges for authors or readers.

For more details about the journal and the reasons for starting it, see the blog post below. And if you are combinatorialist reading this and would like to help us off to a strong start, then we'd be delighted. Our part of the bargain is that it will be the journal's policy to accept papers if and only if they are of a high standard: if we don't receive many good papers then we won't publish many papers. That way, you can submit a good paper to us and be confident that it won't be selling it short.

Only 17% of profiles on Wikipedia are of women!

The #WIKI4WOMEN initiative calls on everyone to take few minutes on International Women's Day, Thursday, 8th March 2018, to create, enrich or translate, in as many languages as possible, Wikipedia portraits of women who have made important contributions to science, education, culture, the humanities and social sciences, or communication and information.

There is an interesting article in the AMS notices this month that explains in more detail how challenging this simple-sounding intervention is in practice.

http://www.ams.org/journals/notices/201803/rnoti-p330.pdf

A few years ago I created pages for several distinguished women mathematicians, and they were marked for deletion within the hour. I had to engage in prolonged discussions with several editors and enlist the help of others to keep the profiles alive. I am pleased that the pages have not only survived, but been expanded by others since.

If you completed a thesis in analytic number theory or additive combinatorics in 2016 or 2017, and have spent at least 10 months of your academic life at a French or Canadian institution, you are eligible to apply for the recently established Prix Kevin Henriot (application deadline 15th March 2018).

I sadly won't be able to participate this year, but if you're a young Spanish-speaking mathematician keen to learn some serious mathematics in Argentina this summer, consider signing up for AGRA 3 (application deadline 4th March 2018).
