Niche job?

Saw this ad in the Chronicle. First thing I thought was, "They must be advertising for a position for which they already have their person." But then, I thought, "Perhaps not...perhaps there's a ton of people who have patch-clamped sperm (and published from it)."

Please don't lash out at or flagellate me in the comments.

Physiology/Biophysics: Virginia Commonwealth University, School of Medicine, Department of Physiology & Biophysics is recruiting an Electrophysiologist (Ph.D. required in Physiology & Biophysics or related field) as a non-tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level. Candidate must have extensive demonstrated experience in patch-clamp recording from mammalian sperm and both from native cells and cell lines expressing heterologously a variety of ion channels. Extensive experience with molecular biological techniques for structure-function studies, strong quantitative training, and publication(s) using patch-clamp techniques on mammalian sperm are required.
