The following departments in the U.S. have formally adopted an agreement to coordinate their earliest deadline for responding to postdoctoral job offers for those jobs that begin in the fall of 2021. This agreement specifically excludes tenure-track offers, and it applies only to candidates who are less than or equal to two years past the receipt of the Ph.D. The departments listed below have agreed not to require responses to postdoctoral job offers before Monday, February 1, 2021.

The agreement attempts to address the problem that sometimes faces candidates for postdoctoral positions when they are asked to respond to a job offer by a certain date and this date is before the date of announcement of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Fellowships. To avoid this problem, the NSF's Division of Mathematical Sciences has agreed to complete its review of applications and electronically notify all applicants by January 22, 2021, at the latest.

A department's appearance in the list does not necessarily mean it has postdoctoral positions available for fall 2021.

If your department would like to announce its adoption of the agreement, please send email to

Dr. Torina Lewis at the AMS

postdoc-deadline@ams.org.

The list will be updated weekly until mid-January 2021.
