Nonprofit newsroom ProPublica announced today that it’s accepting applications for two more investigative reporters and a blogger.
Managing editor Stephen Engelberg says applicants for the reporting positions can come from any investigative background but that ProPublica is especially interested in energy and environment, education or immigration reporters.
The full-time blogger will “write about investigative journalism by others and suggest follow-ups. We’re looking for an experienced journalist, who has a critical eye, a strong voice, and a knack for daily writing and reporting. The job will also involve overseeing our aggregation effort.”
“We feel very fortunate to be able to hire given the current economic environment,” said Paul Steiger, editor-in-chief of ProPublica, in a statement. However, it should be noted that the org is hiring not because it’s expanding but because one reporter was promoted and two quit (or “relocated from New York for personal reasons”).
Still, as far as investigative journalism goes, you can’t go wrong with ProPublica. Here’s how to apply.
