Head Dead

Talk about a real dead-end job.

The University of California at Santa Cruz is hiring an archivist for its massive Grateful Dead collection, a gig described as “a potential career status position.”

The successful candidate must be “an enterprising, creative, and service-oriented archivist” with a Master’s degree in archive management and previous experience with special collections.

“Expert knowledge in history of and scholarship of contemporary popular music, or American vernacular culture, preferably the history and influence of the Grateful Dead” is a plus.

The gig pays from $52,860 to $68,892 and carries full benefits. The posting doesn’t mention if April 20 is included as a floating holiday.
