Jonathan Micah Rosenberg (born December 30, 1951 in Chicago, Illinois[1]) is an American mathematician, working in algebraic topology, operator algebras, K-theory and representation theory, with applications to string theory (especially dualities) in physics.

Rosenberg received Ph.D. in 1976, under the supervision of Marc Rieffel, from the University of California, Berkeley (Group C*-algebras and square integrable representations).[2] From 1977 to 1981 he was assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania, and, since 1981, he has been at the University of Maryland at College Park; there he is Ruth M. Davis Professor of Mathematics.

He studies operator algebras and their relations with topology, geometry, with the unitary representation theory of Lie groups, K-theory and index theory. Along with H. Blaine Lawson and Michail Leonidowitsch Gromow, he is known for the Gromov–Lawson–Rosenberg conjecture.

Since 2007 he is the editor of the Journal of K-Theory. From 2000 to 2003 he was associate editor of the Journal of the American Mathematical Society from 1988 to 1992 of Proceedings of the AMS. From 1981 to 1984 he was a Sloan Fellow . He is a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.[3]
