Job Description

The Washington Post's Social Issues team has an opening for an enterprising reporter to cover gender and family issues.

We are looking for a reporter who can lead our coverage as gender identity becomes one of the defining issues of our time. The role of gender in the lives of individuals and institutions also are crucial elements of this beat. This reporter will lead The Post's coverage of transgender rights just as they have risen to the forefront of America's culture wars and as new fronts are opening in state legislatures. The successful candidate will have a vision for keeping The Post's coverage the best in the nation.

This reporter also will write about gender and family in all aspects of society and policy, including the impact of evolving gender roles on marriage, the law and politics.

We are looking for a versatile journalist who can write breaking news cleanly and quickly and craft absorbing narratives. This individual also must be a generous team player who will collaborate with others on the Social Issues team and work well with colleagues across the newsroom.

This position is based in our Washington newsroom. Once we resume normal operations, it will not be eligible for remote work.

The Post strives to provide its readers with high-quality, trustworthy news and information while constantly innovating. That mission is best served by a diverse, multi-generational workforce with varied life experiences and perspectives. All cultures and backgrounds are welcomed.

Candidates should upload a résumé, cover letter outlining their vision for the beat and three clips (as PDFs) to our job portal by April 22. All application materials can be uploaded to the same field. The cover letter should be addressed to Local Editor Mike Semel, Deputy Local Editor Monica Norton, Social Issues Editor Annys Shin and Managing Editors Tracy Grant and Krissah Thompson.
