According to the official job description, the Victoria and Albert museum is seeking, “the most studious Swiftie.” They want someone who can flex their deep knowledge about the megastar, and this “superfan advisor” will also help them learn more about their V&A collection “as well as the current cultural trends that will inform the future of museum collecting.”

This role goes beyond knowing every word to every Taylor Swift song. Applicants must have a “hyper niche interest” in the singer in order to advise on why the topic of Swift is “important to the history of Art and Design, and the future of creativity.”

“These new advisory roles will help us celebrate and discover more about the enormous, and often surprising, creative diversity on offer at the V&A, as well as helping us to learn more about the design stories that are relevant to our audiences today,” museum director Dr. Tristram Hunt told The Guardian.
