Update (Nov. 17): This position has been filled.
ProPublica offers one distributed reporting/social media internship each spring, summer and fall.
We are hiring immediately for the spring internship. Applications should be sent by the end of October. The position is in NY. There will be the possibility of extending the internship. The internship is full-time, based in New York, and pays $700/week.
The intern will work closely with Amanda Michel, Dir. of Engagement. Applicants should have experience reporting and/or managing volunteers (or online organizing) and a track-record of innovation. The intern will assist Amanda in developing new reporting methods, like building source networks (for which ProPublica received a Special Distinction Award from the Knight-Batten Awards for Innovations in Journalism). They will assist in collaborative reporting projects, such as ProPublica's Super Bowl Blitz and the Stimulus Spot Check. They will also help manage ProPublica's social media presence and e-mail communications. Someone with solid number crunching skills and an affinity for stats/data will make a better candidate.
