The Department successfully hired four assistant professors last year: Matthew Karp, Rosina Lozano, Teresa Shawcross, and Jack Tannous. Because a number of them have chosen to accept post-doctoral fellowships, they will become active members of the faculty at different times within the next year or so. The first to arrive is Jack Tannous, himself a Princeton Ph.D. He has been on a teaching postdoc for two years in Washington, D.C., but being eager to return to Princeton, he decided to forego the third year he was entitled to and is teaching a Junior Seminar this fall.
