The Center for Economic and Policy Research is one of the few good think-tanks in town, and I don't say that just because I met my wife while working there. Their stable of full-time and associated economists and policy analysts are that rare mixture of talent and political commitment that perform an outsize role in a country/world where Thomas Friedman is seen as an expert on globalization. While they are sober and non-partisan, they are also about the only progressive public intellectuals that don't seem to rejoice in kicking advocates in the face just to sell books or make a name for themselves. Not that I have any experience with that or anything. ;)
Anyway, CEPR's hiring an international economist, and if you're a PhD economist and you like this blog, you should strongly consider applying.
