hiring a web journalist who can help manage the award-winning Marcellus Shale specialty site. The position requires skills in data visualization and computer-assisted reporting and encompasses long-term
 projects, daily breaking news coverage and enterprising photography/videography.

Howard Award for Environmental Reporting and was named Best Specialty
Site by the Online News Association in October, 2011.

    The successful candidate will have experience coding and building 
interactives, photo/video skills and a working knowledge of
 audio/video editing software. The position also requires the ability
 to work across newsroom departments in developing innovative ways to
 tell stories and help cover major events like the 2012 elections. 
Experience with user engagement and community management a plus.

    Please send a resume and relevant work to Deputy Managing Editor Mary
