STAT, a leading health and medicine publication, is looking for an energetic, versatile, and hard-charging reporter to join our Washington D.C. bureau. The ideal candidate will have experience as a beat reporter or equivalent experience covering health-related political stories. Reporting background in any of these areas is a plus: Congress, the White House, the FDA, HHS, hospitals or health tech.

STAT covers a range of issues debated in D.C., with a particular emphasis on the government’s response to Covid-19, of course, as well as drug pricing reform, biomedical research funding and regulation, public health policymaking, and the health sector’s influence in Washington. We’re looking for a reporter who can break news and deliver quick-turn analyses, including for our subscription offering, STAT Plus, but also conceive of and execute illuminating, provocative and unexpected enterprise stories. Our Washington reporters make up a small but close-knit team that stands out for impactful exclusives.

STAT is a startup, so collaborative spirit, flexibility, 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. Please submit your resume, cover letter, and up to eight clips to Erin Mershon, our Senior News Editor. Her email is erin.mershon@statnews.com.
