The Wisconsin State Journal, south-central Wisconsin's leading news source, is seeking a smart and aggressive reporter to cover the University of Wisconsin System and its world-class UW-Madison research campus, as well as higher education policy and student trends.

This is a high-impact, high-profile beat, requiring an ability to write with depth and nuance on deadline while working on Sunday-quality enterprise and watchdog stories.

Experience in accountability reporting, aggressive use of public records law and a high comfort level working with data is required.
