New York Times Intel Correspondent in Washington, District Of Columbia

Job Description

The New York Times Washington Bureau is looking for an ambitious correspondent to cover the C.I.A. and the nation's other intelligence agencies.

A strong background in national security reporting in Washington is highly desired. The applicant must be experienced in developing sources, writing authoritatively on deadline and turning out sophisticated, exclusive enterprise pieces. The applicant must be able to collaborate with other reporters on a range of other topics, including the Russia investigation, military intelligence and Trump administration foreign policy.

Candidates should submit a memo outlining their vision for covering the beat. Some questions to address, though not to limit yourself to: What areas of the beat do you consider most important? What should be getting more coverage than it is? What kinds of stories should we avoid? What stories on the beat, beyond The Times's coverage, do you admire and why? Where could The Times improve?

Interested in this Guild position? Apply in Workday and contact national security editor Amy Fiscus at .
