Ashton Kutcher is looking to recruit university students for a new Los Angeles-based technology start-up company.

The Two and a Half Men star and savvy tech investor has posted an opening for a writer on the community board at New York's prestigious Columbia University, appealing for undergraduate English majors to apply for the position.

The listing reads: "This job will require relocating to La, and will provide an opportunity to be a part of the tech company's founding team. "Your writing will be a centerpiece of the company's product and will reach millions of people."

Kutcher - an early investor in video-calling service Skype - has stopped short of revealing specific details about the start-up company, but notes that the job calls for an applicant with at least three years of college and with "creativity and taste for aesthetic beauty", while the successful candidate will be expected to write "daily creative pieces" and "curate content for application's homepage (sic)".
