ProPublica is looking for a top-notch senior research fellow to work in one of America’s most innovative newsrooms. You’ll team up with reporters and editors to do the kind of deep digging required to put out rigorous, powerful investigations.
You’ll plot out the best way to find everything that is needed for a story. This could run the gamut from filing a FOIA request to tracking down a difficult-to-find source.
You’ll collaborate across the ProPublica newsroom and with publishing partners on projects that can take a variety of forms, from newspaper-style take-outs to magazine, radio and TV pieces, often accompanied by groundbreaking interactive databases.
You’ll work on newsroom-wide initiatives to enhance and improve our investigations, by finding databases to help flesh out ongoing projects to creating our own in-house files and trackers for our accountability journalism.
