Spectrum is looking for an experienced and savvy data reporter to bring a new era of quantitative reporting to our site.

Spectrum is an autism news site intended for scientists, although many non-scientists read us too. We seek a data maven who is excited to analyze data from autism research and produce valuable databases, maps and visualizations.

You'll take on long-term projects, including creating databases of autism drugs and designing interactive graphics, such as our map of global autism prevalence. You'll also produce data-driven news stories and accompanying graphics.

You will work with our award-winning team to find the stories behind the numbers in autism research, hold scientists accountable, and find trends by connecting dots. This is a fantastic opportunity for a data-visualization expert looking to dive into an exciting and rapidly growing field.

Bring at least three years of experience in data-driven reporting. We offer a generous salary and truly excellent benefits.
