ProPublica is excited to announce a new opportunity for early- to mid-career journalists who want to develop their investigative reporting skills.
We are looking for three two-year Abrams Reporting Fellows to join one of America’s most innovative (and fun) investigative newsrooms. We’re not interested in having you cover daily news. Your job will be to do enterprising, hard-hitting stories. Our newsroom zigs where others zag, taking on topics that are overlooked or telling stories in new and exciting ways.
Over the course of their two years, we expect that fellows will take on a mix of short-, medium- and longer-term stories. That includes reporting and writing stories of your own (examples include this and this) and collaborating on some of ProPublica’s biggest and most complex projects, like this one about the dangers of certain booster seats that prompted a congressional investigation.
This fellowship is different from others we’ve offered at ProPublica because it runs for two years. It pays $75,000 per year and includes full benefits. We hope fellows take on increasingly complex stories during their time on our staff, working independently and with colleagues.
Fellows will start on July 1, 2021. One fellow will write national stories based out of our headquarters in New York, one will cover the Midwest from our office in Chicago and one will cover the Southwest from our office in Phoenix. The locations for these positions are not negotiable.
Questions? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. No phone calls, please. The deadline for applications is May 23 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific time.
