All the suggestions put forward have merit: gussied-up job title for a
technical typist, internal office politics causing the job to be poorly
advertised on purpose, etc. I live around here though, and there's some
local information that might be relevant. I used to work at a printing
company that specialized in scientific journals. The plant was closed a few
years back when all the typesetting, proofreading, and graphic work was
moved to a vendor in India. There's a smaller company now that does
slapdash redacting, copyediting, and article assembly for those same
journals. My former coworkers and I have moved on in the years since, but
there are still a LOT of people in the area with experience in editing
scientific material, and most of them had to take worse jobs when the plant
closed.
