You're going to have to be clearer on what you mean.
If you mean license a fanfic or ask a fanfic writer to do a job just based on his fanfics, then no. They can't even read fanfics, so they aren't going to do any licensing on them.
However, someone who is a fan and wrote fanfics could still be hired to do something. The thing is, they can't just be a fanfic writer, they need to be someone who's actually trying to make a career out of their writing and applies for a job, possibly with a connection. A major reason Ted Anderson, a fan since season 1, got a job on the comics is largely because he was friends with a guy who knew a guy who knew the editor, and that gave him the chance to show some sample work and pitches. Another example I could think of for a different series would be current Sonic and Mega Man comics writer Ian Flynn, who used to write Sonic fan comics. He spent four years applying to Archie, sending in sample works that he kept on revising and improving on.
