\opening{Dear Hiring Committee:}
21
22
I wish to apply for a tenure or tenure-track position in mathematics.
23
My AMS cover sheet, curriculum vitae, research statement, and teaching
24
statement are enclosed. I have arranged for letters of recommendation
25
from Benedict Gross, Joe Harris, Hendrik Lenstra, Barry Mazur, and Ken
26
Ribet to be sent separately.

I am currently a Benjamin Peirce Assistant Professor at Harvard
29
University. My interests are in {\bf number theory} and {\bf
30
scientific computation}. In particular, I study elliptic
31
curves, modular forms, and special values of $L$-functions,
32
especially from the viewpoint of explicit computation. In my
33
research, I have created modular forms algorithms, software, and
34
databases, and have developed methods for computing with modular forms
35
and abelian varieties, and applied my results to study the Birch
36
and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture.
37
%My research is closest to that of ...
38
39
My eight years of teaching experience has ranged from freshman to
40
graduate levels, and I have included undergraduate students in some of
41
my research.
42
43
I am very committed to pursuing a research career in academia, and
44
look forward to hearing from you regarding my application. If you have
45
any further questions, please send email to {\tt was@math.harvard.edu}
46
or call me at 617-308-0144. Thank you for your time and
47
consideration.
