Work For Us

Reporter, Faculty Issues

Inside Higher Ed 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, academic freedom, the ups and downs of faculty and grad student unions, 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 two 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 1.3 million unique monthly users and 105,000+ 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 or by mail to:

Reporting Intern (Fall)

Inside Higher Ed is seeking a (paid) reporting intern for the fall.

Inside Higher Ed's interns work shoulder to shoulder with our team of reporters, reporting and writing news and feature stories for our 1.3 million monthly readers. They do little to no grunt work.

Interns need to show intellectual curiosity, an ability to juggle multiple assignments, and an inclination to dig deeply. They should have at least two years of college journalism experience, and some previous professional experience is desirable.

Applicants should send a resume, cover letter and five strong clips to Doug Lederman at or to the address below.

Interns will be paid a more-than-livable monthly stipend.
