This temporary, fulltime position is responsible for reporting on health and science related topics. The Health and Science Desk reporter should be an engaging story teller with strong reporting and writing abilities and two to three years of journalism experience, preferably in radio.

The reporter must be comfortable producing content for radio, television, and the web, be able to produce high quality photographs to supplement their stories, and have knowledge of audio editing software.

The position demands a high level of creativity in attaining hard to get sources, and it is critical that the reporter is able to display good judgment in properly assessing the newsworthiness of their subject as well as its appeal to the reader. The position requires the ability to work effectively in a deadline driven environment. This is a yearlong temporary position (May 2013- May 2014) that carries no guarantee of future employment. Interested candidates should submit a resume, cover letter and be prepared to submit at least two related writing samples if needed.
