Job Description

STAT, the leading health and medicine publication, is looking for a hard-charging reporter to join its fast-growing coverage at the forefront of health technology. The ideal candidate would have a deep interest in health or technology journalism, a sharp eye for what’s around the curve, and the ability to cut through the billion-dollar buzzwords to give readers a clear picture of what matters. Our top priority is a talented, energetic reporter who’s eager to hit the ground running and deliver authoritative insights on the industry, its hurdles, and where it’s headed next.

What you’ll do

  • Tell smart, compelling stories on the intersection of health, scientific research and technology. Illuminate industry-wide shifts and explore the business strategies of tech giants, health care titans, and startups.
  • Examine the research underlying new technologies, and dig into issues of bias, access, and adoption. Cultivate sources at technology and health care companies to write enterprise and investigative stories
  • Be a key player on a top-notch team producing deep and vital reporting of the health tech industry, a rapidly evolving area of medicine attracting billions of dollars of investment from the world’s biggest companies.
  • Contribute to our STAT Health Tech newsletter and other newsletters. Play a role in helping organize and moderate STAT events related to health tech.

You are:

  • A versatile writer prepared to dive in on a wide range of stories — not only breaking news and quick-turn analytical pieces, but also insightful and unexpected features.
  • A self-starter when it comes to stories, but also collaborative in nature. STAT is a start-up with a tight-knit, all-hands-on-deck culture and a strong team dynamic.
  • Committed to excellence in your reporting.

The fine print

STAT is affiliated with Boston Globe Media Partners but is independent from The Boston Globe.

While the location of this position is flexible, occasional travel is likely once the pandemic subsides. That would include trips to STAT’s headquarters in Boston and travel to other cities for reporting purposes.

How to Apply

Please send your resume, cover letter, and links to up to five clips that showcase your reporting attached to your resume or following your cover letter. Candidates can apply on the Boston Globe Media careers page.
