Dear Friends and Collegues,

This year our Department of Mathematics here at the Pennsylvania State
University is seeking to fill two faculty positions.  One of the areas
to be emphasized is Logic and Foundations!

In addition, we usually hire some postdocs.  Some of these 3-year
positions are known as S. Chowla Research Assistant Professorships and
are very desirable.

The relevant web page is http://www.math.psu.edu/hiring/.  Here are
some excerpts from that page:
