This sounds like a college student wet dream. A physicist has been appointed as a postdoctoral fellow in beer studies. The news article is actually pretty hilarious! Now that might explain why I have such an affinity for freshly-baked bread and why I learned how to bake bread myself while I was preparing for my oral exam. Before you fall off your chair, look at the posted date of this "news" article. I am so hoping that this was a joke, for their sake. Zz.
