Full Time

The Wall Street Journal is looking for an aspiring journalist with the persistence and enthusiasm to help us cover China, the world's second largest economy and a major global power.

As a researcher, you would join The Wall Street Journal's China bureau and work with top-flight reporters to produce the world's best coverage of this fascinating and varied country.

You will be a key player on a team covering everything from large technology companies to the pace of economic growth, as well as the diplomatic maneuvering as China finds its feet with a new U.S. administration.

You will work with editors and reporters from China and other bureaus to develop stories, track down sources for interviews, and locate documents for in-depth projects. There will be a special emphasis on finance, taking advantage of your base in Shanghai.

You will need to show that you have the determination to dig for the deeper story. A thick skin and the inability to take no for an answer are crucial, as are a nimble mind and a temperament for teamwork.

You must be fluent in Chinese and able to write clearly in English. The job is based in Shanghai and reports to the China bureau chief and coordinates closely with our regional finance editor in Hong Kong.
