New chair in Irish economic policy at NUI Galway

And while we are celebrating a success for an NUIG man (Micheal D.) I am delighted to see that NUI Galway has just advertised a Personal Professorship in Irish Economic Policy. See here for the job spec “The new Professor will play a central role in developing a Centre for the Study of Irish Economic Policy, which will focus on the development of Irish macroeconomic and financial policy in the context of the broader European Union economy.” I mention it here to help ensure as wide a range of applicants for the post. Economic policy in Ireland faces major challenges in the years ahead so it vital to get some fresh ideas and new blood. I look forward to reading the peer reviewed publications of the holder of this important position, whoever he (or she) is.
