Each of these job announcements specifically mentions computational geometry or a closely related field. Most of these were taken from the Computing Research Association's job listings, the Usenet newsgroup comp.theory, and the COMPGEOM, DMANET, and TheoryNet mailing lists. Please send me (email@example.com) email if you know of a relevant position that should be listed here.
Each announcement is kept here until at least two weeks after its application deadline, or if no application deadline is given, until the position begins. Unless otherwise indicated, all announced positions are in a computer science department (or its equivalent) and begin Fall 1999.
Announcements marked specifically request applicants with experience in computational geometry. Items marked have been recently added or modified.
Quickly becoming the standard hiring mechanism for many mathematics departments, but not very useful for computer science (yet). Tons of good information about applying for jobs, the state of the academic job market, the simultaneous PhD glut and IT worker shortage, graduate education, tenure reform, and other useful topics.
Useful, especially late in the search process, but incredibly annoying. Positions are only listed alphabetically, and the list is usually updated about once a month. Maddening misuse of HTML tables. Contains several announcements missed by CRA, most of which were irrelevant to my search.
This was the most useful site, at least after KAPPS died (RIP). Positions are listed in reverse chronological order, and the list is usually updated about once a week. All announcements are also sent out to a mailing list a week or two after they appear on the web. Contains a few relevant announcements that ACM misses.
Almost useless. For some reason, most PhDgranting computer science departments don't advertise here, but this might be a good place to look if you want a pure teaching job.
Occasionally useful, but almost all the ads relevant to my search were also sent to ACM and/or CRA.
Almost exclusively positions in (applied) mathematics departments, but with a few computer science and engineering positions thrown in for flavor. Rarely useful for my search.
