Its seems that for one geek 2012 is going to be a good year, imagine maintaining Stephen Hawking’s wheelchair, voice box and any other that he may possess and getting paid around £25,000 a year for the privilege!
This position has been advertised on the professor’s website, it also requires the chosen one to take care of travel arrangements, looking after the van and helping to prepare lectures, sounds like someone is going to be busy.
According to the advert on the official website of Stephen Hawking;
“It is not a PhD or post-doc position for academics looking to study physics, but a purely technical post to allow Prof Hawking to function within the physics community and as a public speaker. The original purpose of this position was to aid Professor Hawking in those areas which he has difficulty due to his disability. The job has since expanded.”
