LAX JOB OPP - USC Annenberg School for Communication- Writer

USC Annenberg School for Communication- Writer, California HealthCare
Foundation Center for Health Reporting
Job Status: Full-time
Salary: $75,000 to $100,000
SENIOR WRITERS – The new California HealthCare Foundation Center for
Health Reporting at the USC Annenberg School for Communication is
looking for three experienced, accomplished, self-starting journalists
to report about the health care issues that concern Californians.
Candidates should be skilled in narrative, explanatory and
investigative reporting and able to undertake complex projects,
including multimedia components. As health care issues are ultimately
about people, successful candidates should be adept at storytelling,
weaving policy issues with compelling, people-based storylines. They
should also be committed to the center’s solutions-based approach to
journalism. Candidates must demonstrate a finely honed collaborative
sense as most projects will be pursued in partnership with other news
organizations, in and around their newsrooms, with reporters and
editors of varying skills and experience. At various times, these
senior writers will be called on to be a mentor and a diplomat. While
familiarity with health care policy issues is not a requirement, it is
an advantage, as is the ability to think across media, to audio,
visual, multimedia journalism. Candidates should be knowledgeable
about California, its diverse population, its government and politics
and its news media. Fluency in Spanish is a plus as is experience in
computer-assisted reporting. Frequent and extensive travel throughout
the state is required. One position is expected to be based in
Sacramento, and experience in covering state government will be
important. Applications must be made through the USC employment
Website (https://jobs.usc.edu) for positions under the listings for
health care public communications specialist. Resumes and cover
letters may also be sent to Prof. Michael Parks, USC Annenberg School
for Communication, 734 West Adams Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90089-7725.
