The Wall Street Journal’s Health & Science group is looking for an energetic reporter with boundless curiosity to cover science and scientists. You will cover scientific findings in the STEM fields -- including physics, robotics, chemistry, quantum computing, mathematics and artificial intelligence -- with a particular focus on astronomy and space exploration. And you will dig into the complex institutions and individuals pursuing answers to some of the biggest questions in the universe. Covering science requires the ability to see both the potential of innovations and the need for larger context, and we’re looking for someone who demonstrates the ability to marry curiosity with clear judgment.
You will report to the science bureau chief. While you will likely start the job working remotely, you will eventually be based in our New York office.
Identify the impacts of new advances and research and show our audience why they matter
Bring stories of the scientists behind some of the biggest scientific developments and their quests home to our audience
Work with graphics and photography teams to bring science stories alive
3-5 years covering science or technology
The writing chops to take complex topics and turn them into engaging, accessible prose
