MinnPost, one of the nation’s most successful nonprofit digital news organizations, is hiring a health equity reporting fellow.

This is a year-long, full-time position that will cover the different ways poverty, discrimination, education, employment, transportation, housing and the environment affect health and health care as it intersects with race. You can see examples of the coverage we’ve produced on this beat since 2022 here, and we’re interested in hearing your ideas about how you would approach this coverage going forward.

Our ideal candidate is an early career journalist who is eager to learn and help explain complex issues and solutions to our readers. We’re looking for someone who is entrepreneurial, a team player, and driven by our shared belief that rigorous, in-depth journalism is crucial to a strong democracy.

The position is based in Minneapolis and will primarily be focusing on reporting in and around the Twin Cities, though there is likely to be some reporting in Greater Minnesota.

The fellowship is slated to run from January–December of 2024, and the fellow will be a member of MinnPost staff, with a full-time salary and benefits. This is a union position included in MinnPost’s collective bargaining agreement with the Minnesota Newspaper and Communications Guild.
