Update, Jan. 12, 2016: This position has been filled.
We are looking for a reporting fellow to work in our newsroom. The fellowship is a minimum of 16 weeks and can last for up to a year. We're ready for you to start as soon as you're available. It's full-time, based in New York, and compensation is $700 per week. Fellows primarily report their own stories -- like this one -- but also collaborate with ProPublica's reporters on big projects.
We're looking for somebody who has done reporting, and loves doing it.
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. You can read a few examples here, here, and here.
We are committed to diversity and building an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds. Everyone is encouraged to apply, including women, LGBTQ people, people of color, and people with disabilities.
