Job Market

For the past year, I’ve been thinking more seriously about the possibility of moving to the US (or perhaps Europe), even though I have tenure here. Some friends and colleagues have confirmed something I’d already heard about: the job market in the US has been terrible for the past couple of years. If anyone has any insights about this topic, feel free to post a comment or (better) send me an email.

(Thanks to everyone for the emails.)
