Inside Higher Ed, a growing, successful national daily online publication covering the complex and compelling world of higher education, is seeking an experienced, enterprising reporter to cover the management, business practices, and governance of colleges and universities. Much of higher education is under great financial and management strain, and our readers will look to this reporter to help them understand which types of colleges have viable business models, how effective (and ineffective) presidents operate (and fail), and how state and federal policies help or hurt institutions. Just a few of the many timely issues on this reporter's agenda: the survival of small private colleges, booms and busts in state spending and endowment growth, tuition pricing and discounting, and political interference in university governance.

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 three 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 1.3 million unique monthly users and 103,000 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:
