I am writing with a job posting from the Economics Department,
University of Massachusetts (USA), Amherst,
http://www.umass.edu/economics/. We have placed the ad in some of
both the mainstream and the heterodox outlets linked on the PAE web
page. However, I am also sending the posting directly to PAE because
I believe that my colleagues at UMass are doing the kinds of economics
that will interest and engage many PAE contributors and subscribers.
I hope that some PAE participants will choose to apply for a position
at UMass. If there is an opportunity to circulate the job posting in
the PAE community, I would be most grateful. Please do not hesitate
to contact me (email below). Thank you very much.
