I'm fairly sure that there is a nonzero probability that the ad won't include a preference for expertise in the hopeless CVM**:
Michael Greenstone, an international leader in energy and environmental economics, has been appointed Professor of Economics and director of the interdisciplinary Energy Policy Institute at Chicago.
At EPIC, a joint project of the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, the Department of Economics and the Harris School of Public Policy, Greenstone will lead a growing research and training effort with a focus on the economic and social consequences of energy policies. His appointment will start July 1, 2014.
“In his prolific and cutting-edge research, Michael has revolutionized the way we think about energy economics,” said John List, chairman of Economics. “He will be a leader in his field for decades to come, and his work will further broaden the impact of UChicago’s innovative thinking and research across disciplines and geographic boundaries.”
I'm looking forward to tailgating with Greenstone and List at the Centre vs Chicago football games!
*A number of alternative titles using epic, the most overused word ever, have crossed my mind ... but I like this one best: Michael Greenstone, obviously, is an unusually large, powerful or wonderful economist.
