Entry-level reporter jobs @ The New Republic

The New Republic, a biweekly 53,000-circulation magazine covering U.S. politics, seeks reporter-researchers for its 2011-2012 program. The year-long job is based in Washington, D.C., begins in summer 2011 and includes a stipend. Graduating seniors as well as recent graduates and graduates from post-grad programs are welcome to apply.

Job duties include reporting, researching, writing, and fact-checking for TNR's print magazine and TNR Online; as well as assisting with web production and performing occasional clerical tasks. Reporter-researchers work closely with writers and editors, and are strongly encouraged to write articles. Most reporter-researchers finish their program with a substantial portfolio of clips and have gone on to work almost everywhere in journalism—including TNR itself.

Please e-mail the following items to Chloë Schama at job [at] tnr [dot] com, with the subject line "(Your Name) RR Application 2011":
1. A cover letter.
2. A one-page résumé.
3. A 750-word critique of the politics section (the Mall and Features) of a recent issue of the magazine.
4. Two clips (if possible, one opinion and one news).

No phone calls and no snail mail (undue phone calling is especially unwelcome). We don’t have time to let you know that we received your applications, so please don’t expect confirmation. The deadline is February 11, 2011.
