OT: Smithsonian wants a beer historian

I thought this might be right up some MGoUser's alley - the Smithsonian Museum of American History is hiring a brew taster/historian to travel the country for three years.  This guy (or gal) will taste local craft brews and write reports about them.  From the story:

No, you don’t have to document beer from the dawn of time. This position is part of the Smithsonian’s food history initiative. The beer industry was all but extinct after Prohibition. It took years for not only the industry, but American beer consumption to rebound to what it was prior to 1919. For this position, the candidate will focus the American brewing industry from the 1960’s forward.

Sadly, its not just taste testing.  The Smithsonian being a museum, and all, they will want you to actually provide museum quality content, I suppose...  But its a 3-yr gig at ~$60K/yr, maybe some newly minted PhD could use a job?  Here's the job app...
