Interested in being a reporter for E&E?

E&E News is always looking for top editorial talent. If you are a superior reporter and writer -- and you want to cover one of the most interesting policy areas on Earth -- we'd love to hear from you. E&E is not looking for bloggers or advocates. We want serious journalists who are politically savvy, write compelling copy and can't stand being beaten when pursuing a story.

Climate Impacts Reporter

We’re hiring a reporter to cover the government’s response to climate change.

The beat will focus on FEMA, the Army Corps, HUD and other agencies that respond to disasters. The right reporter will examine how these agencies are preparing for climate change, and how they’re not. She or he will investigate government decisions to raise homes, reroute rivers, build public housing and insure against loss in a period of rising temperatures. We’ll focus on agency heads, their conduct, and how politics is shaping these policies. There will be some congressional coverage, too.

The right candidate will laugh at closed doors and be able to cultivate sources quickly inside the federal government.

The beat requires a steady mix of hard-hitting daily stories and enterprising pieces. This is a Climatewire position, but the beat will feed stories to other E&E News publications.
