According to Chris Williams of The Register, world renowned physicist Stephen Hawking is looking for a geek capable of keeping his unique wheelchair up and running.
Could you repair and tweak superstar physicist Stephen Hawking's robot voice box and gadget-laden wheelchair? If you reckon yes, then the celebrated author and cosmologist wants to hear from you.
He has a technical assistant job going, with a modest graduate salary, and it involves maintaining the electronic systems that allow him to speak in public and meet others in the rock'n'roll globetrotting world of physics.
And in case you didn't think Hawking was incredible, not only has he survived an illness that quickly kills 95% of those that have it but he also has teenage groupies.
