Job of the Week: UC-Santa Cruz is hiring a Grateful Dead archivist


Hey, Wall Streeters: Fed up with your job trading now-worthless derivatives? Angry at The System for not recognizing systemic risk? Annoyed that your corporate Yankees box got yanked? Perhaps you should consider a career change. The University of California–Santa Cruz is looking for someone to fill what can truly be called a unique job opening: full-time Grateful Dead archivist.

It's a dream job...for many. Christine Bunting, head of Special Collections and Archives at the university library, says she has received "several dozen" applications. The job has been posted for six days -- which is about the length of the average Grateful Dead jam -- so take note, all you burned-out hedgies: you've still got time!
