The search went public today (see here), and I serve on the search committee. Obviously, we do not expect to replace the irreplaceable, but we are looking for a prominent senior scholar to carry forward the important work that Lin and Vincent Ostrom started. The ideal candidate will be a Workshopper at heart (if not in fact), with a strong commitment to interdisciplinary collaboration, utilizing multiple methods, to understand, diagnose, and hopefully resolve difficult social dilemmas. The terms, which are negotiable, should be highly attractive for a senior, high-profile scholar.
Feel free to email me if you have questions or would like to nominate someone for the position.
