It’s full time, based in New York, and compensation is $700 per week. Fellows will work primarily with senior reporter Charles Ornstein, who covers health care and the pharmaceutical industry.
Reporting fellows at ProPublica have gone on to work at The New York Times, Bloomberg, Politico, NPR, Center for Public Integrity and the Chicago Tribune.
If you would like to apply, fill out the form below. For writing samples, please send us stories that highlight your best hard-hitting reporting. That is, stories that dig something up and hold people or institutions accountable. If you have one, please also include an explainer-type post that helps guide readers through an accountability topic in the news or a health topic in the news. You can read a few examples here, here, and here. Please explain your experience with health reporting and data analysis.
