New York, N.Y. (Sept. 30, 2009)—ProPublica today announced that it is seeking to hire two additional investigative reporters, and invited applications for the jobs. Applicants will be considered from any specialized or generalist investigative reporting background, but ProPublica is especially interested in applicants focused on energy and environment, education or immigration, said Stephen Engelberg, managing editor of ProPublica. Both of the reporters to be hired will be based in ProPublica’s New York office; compensation will be commensurate with experience. Interested applicants should send their resume to [email protected].
ProPublica is also looking for a full-time blogger, who will write about investigative journalism by others and suggest follow-ups. People interested in applying for this job should send their resume to [email protected].
The available jobs are the result of a ProPublica reporter becoming a senior editor and two other staffers relocating from New York for personal reasons.
“We feel very fortunate to be able to hire given the current economic environment,” said Paul Steiger, editor-in-chief of ProPublica. “While we’re open to hearing from all talented investigative reporters, we’ve identified some key areas in which we’d like to bolster our expertise.”
