Description:

Inside Higher Ed, the leading national daily online publication about the complex and compelling world of higher education, is seeking an experienced, enterprising reporter to cover the wide range of issues affecting low-income, adult and other historically underrepresented college students. Much of the action in higher education revolves around this large and growing segment of students, which comprises the majority of enrollments in the U.S.

This reporter will cover efforts to increase completion and attainment and to make college more affordable, including free college programs. Beat areas include community colleges, for-profit institutions and college completion projects at four-year universities, with an eye toward equity and social mobility.

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 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 an authoritative, independent voice for its 2.2 million unique monthly users and 123,000 daily e-mail subscribers.

Inside Higher Ed offers competitive pay, good benefits (including heavily subsidized health, dental and life insurance premiums), and 18 days' 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:
