Dow Jones China Bureau Chief in Beijing, China

Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal is seeking an experienced and enterprising journalist to spearhead ambitious coverage of China — its economy, politics and people. China is the world’s most-populous nation and its second-largest economy. Its rise, and the reaction to it by other nations around the globe, is also the defining story of our time.

The Journal has a long track record of distinguished reportage on China. The new chief will be expected to uphold that tradition, leading a large team of top-notch correspondents.

As 2019 starts, China is once again dominating global headlines. Its economy is slowing, with likely ripple effects around the planet; it is locked in a trade battle with the United States and competing like never before in business and technology, while growing as a military power.

The new chief needs to drive world-beating coverage on everything from companies and markets and the race to dominate new technologies to Chinese domestic politics, foreign policy and military affairs. A central goal will be explicating China’s strategic aims and exploring its strained relations with the U.S. It is a job with a broad remit and one of the most demanding at the Journal, requiring an ability to dominate coverage of breaking news, while also delving into the trends animating China today with deeply reported narratives and investigative work.

We are looking for a chief with a global view and the ability to coordinate and inspire coverage of China and its global reach, collaborating with colleagues from Washington to Tokyo to Sao Paolo and Berlin. The bureau chief for China will report to the World Coverage Chief.
