My guess would be that the successful applicant will have a Nikon Dxxx thrust into his/her hands and told to go take some pictures, then compare with previous/comparative models.
I wouldn't have thought that a specific knowledge of the brand was particularly important. I've used Nikons, Canons, Minoltas, Rolleis, Hasselblads, Linhofs, Wilds, Mamiyas, and probably half a dozen other brands and only ever viewed them as 'Tools'. Some are more comfortable or easy to use than others and that determined my current choice (along with the mountain of glass I've collected over the years!).
I presume you all noted that the ad's been in place since 17 October and with a closing date of 17 November, they won't be appointing anyone until after the launch date (24 Nov) by which time the editorial content of Edition 2 will be well underway, so I wouldn't imagine they're looking for any output from the candidate until Edition 3.
You never know, you might spot a familiar name/face from the forum up there!
The day you think you've found perfection is the day you stop looking, then someone else will find it and move in front of you.
