I actually think that this would be really neat. Obviously I can't apply for this specific position, since I won't have my PhD for at least another 18 months, but it's definitely going on my potential job list. Oh, and salary.com says it meets my salary requirement as well. Those being that I want a job after I graduate where I make more money than Matt does at that time. Because I'm the one with the PhD!
