Inside Higher Ed (http://www.insidehighered.com), a growing, successful national daily online publication covering the complex and compelling world of higher education, is seeking an experienced, enterprising reporter to cover technology issues. This job provides an opportunity to cover an industry in transition in large part due to technological changes, and to explore the cultural as well as the practical implications of those changes. Just a few of the issues on this reporter's agenda: the explosion of massive open online courses (MOOCs) and online learning generally, the impact of technology on the role of professors in the classroom and the operations of institutions in the back office, the spread of open educational resources, and the transformation of the scholarly publishing industry.

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. Candidates should have at least two years of full-time professional reporting experience; a background covering business and/or 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 1.2 million unique monthly users and 98,000 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 jobs@insidehighered.com or by mail to:
