Prize nominations relevant to TCS: due on April 1

The Breakthrough Prize committee is now accepting nominations for the Breakthrough Prize as well as New Horizons Prizes in Mathematics. The New Horizons Prizes are awarded to early-career researchers (Ph.D. within the last 10 years) who have already produced important work. In addition, for the first time, nominations will be taken for the Maryam Mirzakhani New Frontiers Prize – an annual $50,000 award that will be presented to early-career women mathematicians who have completed their PhDs within the previous two years.

Further information is available at https://breakthroughprize.org/Rules/3. Nominations for 2021 are due on April 1, 2020.

Please consider nominating deserving candidates. The task of nominating someone for a high-profile award can be daunting, but the CATCS is available to help. Please contact us if you need help with preparing a nomination.

 

TCS job market profiles

Earlier this academic year, CATCS started a project to collect the profiles of TCS candidates on the job market this academic year. Those profiles can now be found at this webpage. The webpage offers a limited amount of search functionality, and we are continuing to improve the layout and add features.

If you are at an institution that is hiring in theory, please feel free to use this database and share it with your colleagues as appropriate.

If you are going on the job market and would like to fill out a profile, please use this form. We will periodically update the webpage adding newer profiles.

Many thanks to Nicole Immorlica, Jack Snoeyink, and Chris Umans for putting together the website, and to all those who contributed their profiles. Questions and comments may be emailed to Shuchi Chawla.
