The New Republic (TNR) is looking for reporter-researchers for its 2011-2012 program. Job duties include reporting, researching, writing, and fact-checking for TNR's print magazine and TNR Online; as well as assisting with web production and performing occasional clerical tasks. Reporter-researchers work closely with writers and editors, and are strongly encouraged to write articles. Most reporter-researchers finish their program with a substantial portfolio of clips and have gone on to work almost everywhere in journalism—including TNR itself. The year-long job will begin in summer 2011 and will include a stipend. Graduating seniors as well as recent graduates and graduates from post-grad programs are welcome to apply.
