Environment & Public Health Reporter

We're looking for a reporter to cover how environmental pollution and policy affect public health. This position is ideal for an energetic and creative reporter who can stay on top of daily stories while managing feature writing and enterprise reporting.

Responsibilities: You’ll cover the legislative and regulatory landscape for public health issues related to environmental and energy policy and politics, including federal enforcement. That might mean a deep dive into lobbying, an examination of how industries’ emissions affect their neighbors, and following closely how Congress responds.

You'll go where the action is -- from EPA public meetings to wherever our generous travel budget takes you. You’ll chase down lawmakers, work the phones in our conveniently located Capitol Hill office, and visit neighborhoods where people are most affected by environmental decisions made in Washington.

And you’ll be a member of our EPA team, contributing mainly to Greenwire and E&E Daily.

Details:

  • Washington experience isn’t required, but a hunger for scoops and excellent news judgment is.
  • Experience with the subject matter or covering federal regulations would help.
  • An ability to sniff out and avoid spin, quickly digest difficult material and identify the big picture is a must.
  • You’ll thrive if you’re the sort of reporter who keeps a long story list (and follows through on it) but is always willing to pitch in and help fellow members on the team.

This position would be ideal for a journalist with a minimum 3-5 years experience.

To apply, email your cover letter, resume and three clips to editorialjobs@eenews.net.

 

Mining and Coal Reporter

We’re looking for a reporter who will bring enthusiasm and creativity to our coverage of mining and all things coal. You’ll be able to efficiently handle quick-turnaround daily stories while juggling enterprise reporting and light feature writing.

The position broadly calls for covering the legislative and regulatory landscape for mining (metals, coal, etc.), as well as the financial, political, energy and environmental realities of the coal industry. The beat includes regulations out of the Interior Department, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Labor, and the politics and personalities behind the agencies.

You’ll go where the action is -- be it in the halls of Congress, in the bowels of the Interior Department, or wherever our generous travel budget takes you. You’ll chase down lawmakers on the Hill, work the phones in our conveniently located D.C. office, and ultimately find yourself talking to miners in West Virginia or exploring a metal mining operation out West.

We want someone who will be able to explain the context of implications of federal actions for a broad range of readers -- some experts and many who are not.

The reporter will be a member of our natural resources team, contributing to Greenwire, E&E Daily and sometimes Energywire publications.

Details

  • Prior Washington experience is not required, but a thirst for scoops and excellent news judgment is.
  • Experience with the subject matter or covering federal regulations wouldn’t hurt.
  • An ability to avoid spin, carefully digest difficult materials and identify the big picture is a must.
  • You’ll thrive if you’re the sort of reporter who keeps a long story list (and follows through on it) but is always willing to pitch in and help fellow members on the team.
  • This position would be ideal for a journalist with a minimum 3-5 years experience who can hit the ground running.
