We’ve had the unusual circumstance of three simultaneous retirements here at the University of Louisville, which offers us the unusual opportunity to make three hires in one year. This is an exciting opportunity and we’re looking forward to the possibilities for hiring great new colleagues. This would be a great opportunity for junior faculty, to be part of an established program with events such as the Watson Conference, but also with the chance to help shape the future of the program. If you know of anyone going on the job market who might be a good fit for us, please forward the ad information (listed below) to them. I am chairing the Search Committee, so if anyone has any questions, please contact me.
