Inside Higher Ed, a growing, successful national daily online publication covering the complex and compelling world of higher education, is seeking an experienced, enterprising reporter to cover faculty issues and intellectual life. This job provides an opportunity to cover a profession in transition and under intense pressure -- issues such as the continuing erosion of tenure, attacks on public employee unions, academic freedom, the future of the academic work force, and teaching and learning, among other topics.

Inside Higher Ed specializes in contextual journalism that explains the fast-changing world of higher education; our reporters mix beat reporting, analysis and creative approaches to telling stories. Candidates should be able to juggle multiple articles at once, and should like to dig deeply and to learn. They should have at least three years of full-time professional reporting experience; a background covering higher education is a plus. Inside Higher Ed publishes breaking news, features, commentary, blogs and other content (including audio and video) each weekday, and has quickly established itself as a fresh, authoritative, independent voice for its 1,000,000 unique monthly users and 95,000+ daily e-mail subscribers.

Inside Higher Ed offers competitive pay, good benefits (including heavily subsidized health, dental and life insurance premiums), and three weeks' vacation. Centrally located in downtown D.C. Interested applicants should send a cover letter, resume, and five strong clips to newsroom@insidehighered.com or by mail to:
