  • Eugene P. Shelly Visiting Associate Professor
    The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University expects to annually appoint a Shelly Visiting Associate Professor for a term of one academic year. This position, created through a gift of Eugene P. Shelly, is intended for regular mathematics faculty members at institutions that focus primarily on teaching. The idea is to give Carnegie Mellon faculty and graduate students an opportunity to improve their teaching skills through interaction with the visitor, while simultaneously providing the visitor with an enriched research experience. Application procedures are set each fall.
