Starting today, “island-inspired” clothing company Tommy Bahama kicks off its nationwide search for an official Rumologist. The gig, which comes with a $50,000 prize and a wardrobe of bad tiki shirts, sounds halfway between a brand ambassador and a boozeaholic. In short, our kind of job.

The winner must be a rum aficionado who can put the knowledge to good use by inventing new cocktails and adding twists to old recipes.

To enter the search, contenders must create a 45 – 60-second video declaring their candidacy and explaining why they should be chosen as the Rumologist. There's voting and videos and more voting, all of which happens on the Tommy Bahama Facebook page.

The winner will be announced in October 2011.
