The Chronicle of Higher Education is seeking an experienced, enterprising reporter to focus on investigative work and help us hold powerful people accountable.
We are looking for a creative and tenacious reporter who has a track record of mining data and using freedom-of-information laws to probe decision-making, undue influence, and breaches of integrity.
This reporter will cover a range of issues to shed light on higher education in a time of change, scrutinizing how academic leaders are responding to pressures to draw students, tighten budgets, and pursue prestige.
The right candidate has at least three years of experience and is a natural storyteller who can write with authority and generate distinctive story ideas, framed for a national audience. You’ll need to be self-motivated and proactive, eager to collaborate with others, and able to drive conversations about the big issues facing higher education.
The Chronicle is independently owned and based in Washington, D.C. Our pay is commensurate with experience, and our benefits are among the best in the business.
If this sounds like the place you want to make your mark, send a cover letter, resume, and five clips to email@example.com.
