STAT, a national health and medicine publication, is looking for an energetic, versatile, and hard-charging reporter our Washington D.C. bureau. The ideal candidate will have experience as a beat reporter covering both the business and politics of health care and will already be based in Washington. Experience covering Congress and/or the FDA is a plus.

STAT covers a range of issues debated in D.C., with a particular emphasis on drug pricing, biomedical research funding and the pharmaceutical industry’s influence in Washington. We’re looking for a flexible reporter who can break news and deliver quick-turn analyses, including for our subscription product, STAT Plus, but also conceive of and execute illuminating, provocative and unexpected enterprise stories. Our Washington reporters are a small but close-knit team, reporting to an editor based in our Boston headquarters.

STAT is a startup, so collaborative spirit, initiative and a willingness to innovate are essential. Also essential: Fidelity to bedrock journalistic values and a commitment to excellence. STAT is affiliated with Boston Globe Media but is independent from The Boston Globe.

In exchange for your expertise, we offer:

  • Comprehensive health benefits
  • 401k contribution
  • Generous Vacation Time

Please submit your resume, cover letter, and up to eight clips to Erin Mershon at and Alexander Spinelli at
