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 postdoctoral 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.
