This is a chance to be part of a team that has become a leader in deep reporting on climate change accountability and other energy issues. ICN aims to expand our current staff of 17 in the next few years to more fully cover climate and energy in every corner of the country and to establish a permanent newsroom devoted exclusively to environmental journalism.
We prize accuracy, creativity, clarity, flexibility, adherence to deadlines, good news judgment and a strong work ethic. An ability to excel in the culture of an entrepreneurial and collaborative news organization is a must.
At least 1-2 years of full-time or internship experience in journalism.

Superlative people skills and collaborative nature.
Knowledge of environmental science, energy and climate change is a plus.
Founded in 2007, InsideClimate News is an independent, non-profit, non-partisan news organization that covers clean energy, carbon energy, nuclear energy and environmental science—plus the territory in between where law, policy and public opinion are shaped. Already one of the largest environmental newsrooms in the country, ICN is committed to establishing a permanent national reporting network, to training the next generation of journalists, and to strengthening the practice of environmental journalism.
Our operation is largely virtual: We have a hub in New York, one in D.C. and another in Boston, and staff from California to Maine. Our newsroom has always been driven by self-starters. We are staffed by professional journalists, many of whom bring decades of experience from leading media organizations, including the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, ProPublica, Los Angeles Times, Bloomberg News and Frontline. Others come from top programs for science writing and investigative journalism, among other backgrounds. Good ideas propel the operation, wherever they originate.
We have a supportive culture of collaboration and high standards of professionalism. At our core, we are motivated by accountability journalism and storytelling that has the impact to improve the public interest.
We have earned national recognition for our work and many of the most prestigious awards in journalism, including the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting and finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. For more, please see: http://insideclimatenews.org/about.
