To Be The Voice Of Stephen Hawking – Why You Might Have A Chance

Stephen Hawking, famed theoretical physicist and cosmologist, needs your help.

Hawking is best known for his ground-breaking theories regarding gravitational singularities, general relativity, and black hole radiation (coined “Hawking radiation”). He is arguably the West’s most famous and recognizable scientific personality, and possibly one of the smartest men in the world.

The renowned scientist is also known for his physical disabilities. He has long fought against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a disease which has left him wheelchair-bound and almost completely paralyzed. After a tracheotomy in 1985, he lost his voice, which has since been synthesized by a computer that interprets his facial tics. This mechanical monotone is as famous as Hawking himself, and the computer, run by batteries fastened to the back of his wheelchair, also allows him internet access and control over the lights, doors, and television sets in his home and office.

Now Hawking is seeking an assistant to continue to develop and maintain this complicated speech synthesizer. An informal ad posted to Hawking’s website requests that such an assistant be computer savvy, willing to travel, and to be a bit of a techie, able to repair electronic equipment with little to no manual or technical support.

So, in other words, if you fill these requirements you could be the voice of Stephen Hawking.

Tell that to the prom queen at your high school reunion. Yeah, he probably still won’t care. But it would still be one hell of a cool experience.

It’s a complicated system, but if you think you’re up to the challenge, Hawking wants to hear from you. You can find the informal job ad here.

Salary is expected to be roughly $38,500 a year. Apply today!

What do you think? Could you do that job?
