Is UNC at Charlotte or UNC at Chapel hill? Thanks.

Chapel Hill.

Also, more job talks have been added to the Cornell colloquia page:

Lucas Mason-Brown, Oxford Dallas Albritton, Princeton Daniel Stern, Chicago Yusheng Luo, Stony Brook

The candidates from the other thread were: Matthew Harrison-Trainor, Michigan Allen Yuan, Columbia Samuel Braunfeld, Charles University Guillaume Remy, IAS Rachel Webb, Berkeley

This brings 9 total job talks for 3 positions.

wow, 3 positions. That's a lot.

Looks like Harrison-Trainor has enough publications to be a full professor at MRM (or even HRM), how is he still a postdoc more than 5 years after graduation? Logic must be doing extremely bad in the job market.

Wasn't Keating tenured in Cambridge? Seems weird to go back to a TT job.

She got an ERC Grant that can't be used anymore in the UK due to Brexit. By going to Vienna she can use the money.

Lol, Brexit is such a fail.

Harrison-Trainor had offers, but turned them down to be a Mich postdoc…

Blass is a great logician, but there are logicians much greater than him. Also, they work in different areas. I guess that a two-body problem makes more sense.

Can confirm. He had an offer from a pretty good place, and I was surprised that he turned it down.

Let's take this opportunity to salute our fellow logic bros for not being careerists

There were several very good grad students and postdocs in model theory and set theory over the last years who were extremely anti-careerist to the point that they either found themselves outside academia or got really bad positions. I guess that the logicians have a more anti-careerist culture.

Also, I'm sorry but no one is going to a place to work with Blass at this point - if you think that, I think you are likely not in logic tbh.

There is no 2-body.

Logic is far far less careerist than various other fields - I really don't know why - given that so much of this stuff is discussed online now, I think it has changed a bit, but definitely, say 10 years ago, there was a big difference in how things were handled in the field versus many others. I think it was better before people got obsessed with tabulating what publications got into what ranked journals. Things were somehow small enough that people actually knew something about the work of others and didn't obsess wether IMRN was "just below the level of Duke"

Agreed. Look at the Hausdorff Medal, for example. 3 out of 5 times it was given for results that weren't published in top journals. Shelah has many important results published in average journals (if I'm not mistaken, by the time he was 40 he only had one paper in top 3). But now there are some signs that logicians are getting closer to the dark side. I suspect that part of it has to do with the fact that people in DST and applied model theory are getting more recognition from mainstream mathematicians. I also suspect that the utterly ridiculous hype that the Malliaris-Shelah result got a few years ago had opened the appetite of some logicians for more fame and recognition.

That was in the times where you wrote an excellent logic paper and then you could if you wanted simply publish it in a logic venue and people appreciated.

Malliaris Shelah of course was ridiculously overhyped and few people were working on it except Shelah. The regularity lemme stuff (also Malliaris Shelah plus others didn’t get quanta, but had a much much bigger effect)
