I'll be seeking a postdoc position in the US next year (likely to begin in 2011) in Applied Maths. I'm currently in Britain (Canadian citizenship), and I'm curious what effect has the recession had (and will have) on the number of postdoc offerings. I was over in the US for a conference last month and had a few chats with people there who mentioned that the recession did have a fairly strong impact on the number of faculty and postdoc positions. Will this pick up in a year? I can't imagine it would be hard for me to find a postdoc in Britain (or Canada), just by virtue of my background and connections. The US is a bit of a wildcard.
