Sergei GURIEV is named Chief Economist at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)

Professor Sergei GURIEV will join the EBRD for a 2-year stint in 2016, once he has fulfilled his academic commitments of the year. His many research interests include contract theory, corporate governance, political economics and labor mobility.

He is particulary well known for his work in transition economics which undoubtedly inspired the EBRD in their choice. Sir Suma Chakrabarti, EBRD president, said of the 44-year-old economist that he has a “huge amount of experience and expertise” and “deep knowledge of the countries where we operate” (link to EBRD "News").

Considered to be one of Russia's brightest economists, and former Rector of the prestigious New Economic School in Moscow (2004-13), Professor Guriev joined Sciences Po's Department of Economics in 2013.

This exciting news was also reported by the Financial Times (link to FT.com "sign up" via SciencesPo's group subscription).
