If you are interested in IPE and constructivism, there is Mark Blyth. He is the most impressive pioneer in that field with Colin Hay and Vivien Schmidt (BU).

 

By the way, when did you receive your offer for Boston University?

I would go to Brown over BU...neither of them place well though, so be aware of that. Mark Blyth seems pretty awesome, so that would be a draw for me. This doesn't necessarily mean don't go, it just means being aware that a tenure track job at a research university or top liberal arts college is extremely unlikely when you finish.

This discussion indicates one of the hidden costs of going to a lower-ranked program: they tend to have fewer people to work with. If one faculty member leaves or you can't work with someone for whatever reason, it makes the dissertation that much harder to write.

For meteora - sorry it took me so long to respond to your above question. Heard from BU back in early Feb.

 

Thanks for your answer. Did you submit your result for BU at the result page?

Brown does have Colgan, McDermott, and Miller who have pretty impressive CVs. Colgan and Miller, however, are both APs so no guarantee they'll stay at Brown. 

McDermott likely off to USC. Good young assistant professors, though, like Jordan Branch who already is publishing in IO and other places.

Yeah, Blyth is great.
