Job Details

Research Professional News is looking for a talented reporter to join an award-winning news team, covering research policy and funding in the UK, Europe and beyond. We’re after someone who can continue our tradition of setting the news agenda for research and higher education around the world, producing stories that are must-reads for ministers, university leaders and researchers at all levels.

Established in 1994, Research Professional News publishes authoritative news, analysis and comment on policy, funding and politics. Our journalists cover the research sector from top to bottom, reporting from cutting-edge laboratories, university picket lines and court hearings on research misconduct, frequently setting the news agenda for national outlets. Our online news and digital magazines Research Fortnight and Research Europe are essential reading for the sector.

We need someone who can produce stories for this most demanding of audiences, interviewing senior politicians for in-depth profiles, crunching datasets to pick out funding trends, and undertaking investigative work on features alongside rapid turnaround news stories on short deadlines.

This position would suit a junior reporter with some experience in a busy newsroom, although recent graduates with some journalism experience may be considered. We are also currently looking for a more experienced reporter for a more Europe-focused role. Both roles will be part of an editorial team currently working remotely, with an expectation that they will be hybrid office/homework positions in London in future.

To apply, please send a CV, covering letter, two examples of your reporting and your salary expectations to the deputy editor, Daniel Cressey. Alternatively, please contact Daniel.Cressey@ResearchResearch.com to discuss the role informally and learn more about the job and what it is like to work for Research Professional News.
