Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal is looking for a science reporter to cover a broad range of disciplines, from astronomy, physics and earth science to materials science, engineering and computer science.

With new discoveries and technological advances affecting nearly every aspect of our personal, professional and financial lives, hard-hitting science journalism is of critical value to the knowledge workers who are our core readers.

You will craft stories that go beyond the facts to capture the sense of awe that discoveries often bring and to contextualize their real-world consequences. You should have the scientific knowledge and numerical savvy needed to write authoritatively about complex concepts and research findings, and the storytelling chops to do so compellingly.

You must have at least five years of experience as a science journalist working for national news outlets. You must be comfortable working collaboratively in a fast-paced digital newsroom, able to juggle breaking stories and long-term enterprise features.

To apply, please submit your resume, a cover letter explaining how you would approach the job and five work samples that showcase your storytelling chops and your ability to break news. Though you will likely start working remotely, the job is based in New York City and reports to the science bureau chief.
