England's University of Cambridge is planning to get a "Lego Professor."

A $3.9 million (2.5 millon pounds) fund was provided to the university by the Lego Foundation, the research arm of the Denmark-based plastic block-building toy company, for the Lego Professorship of Play in Education, Development and Learning.

Aside from that, the Lego Foundation, which owns 25 percent of the toy firm, also provided $2.33 million (1.5 million pounds) for a play research center in the education faculty, according to the BBC.

According to the university, the Lego professorship job is "open to all those whose work falls within the general field of the title of the office."

In addition to being the professor, the person will also be a director of a new Cambridge research center, which aims to investigate the role of play in education, reported First Post.

The job is "up for consideration" by the university's board, according to a Cambridge spokesperson, reported ITV News.

The Lego Foundation aims to "build a future where learning through play empowers children to become creative, engaged, lifelong learners."

Last year, Cambridge University advertised for a doctor of chocolate in order to study how and why the substance melts.
