Inside Higher Ed, the leading source for news, commentary and analysis about higher education, seeks an enterprising, inquisitive journalist to join its editorial team as a general assignment reporter.

The reporter will cover a wide range of issues about an industry in transition, including the continuing impact of the pandemic on colleges, students and employees; diversity, equity and inclusion; and institutional efforts to survive and thrive.

Inside Higher Ed engages in authoritative journalism that provides a mix of news, enterprise and analysis. 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 technology (for the technology position) 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 an authoritative, independent voice for its 3.5 million unique monthly users and 205,000 daily e-mail subscribers. 

Inside Higher Ed offers competitive pay, good benefits (including heavily subsidized health, dental and life insurance premiums), and 18 days' paid time off plus federal holidays. 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:
