From my inbox:

We’re recruiting for our next Okun-Model fellow, which is a one-year visiting position at Brookings for early career economists. Previous fellows include Melissa Kearney, Jens Ludwig, and Amanda Kowalski. If you know of anyone interested for academic year 2016-2017, or anyone who might know someone interested, please pass along the link:

Kearney is notable for writing the most ridiculous paper ever accepted by the AER: an analysis showing MTV’s 16 and Pregnant decreased teen pregnancies. Other authors with less prestigious pedigrees had already wrote a similar paper that ended up in a third rate journal
