F/T - Assistant News Editor, Research - Wall Street Journal (Manhattan)

The Wall Street Journal is seeking an entry level research professional based in New York City.  We’re looking for a news hound who wants to be an integral part of big, competitive stories. This person will work in partnership with the newsroom’s senior researcher to enhance the quality of news gathering through the use of online databases such as Accurint, TLO, Nexis, Factiva, PACER, and Courtlink. The ideal candidate also will have some familiarity with accessing public and private databases, including some familiarity with using spreadsheets, as well as using social media to ferret out information.  Qualified individuals must be able to handle multiple and varied research assignments. They should have a nose for retrieving and analyzing information, be able to meet tight deadlines, and work well in a team atmosphere. Attention to detail and accuracy is a must. A strong knowledge of current events is key. A degree in library or information science or demonstrated research skills in a journalism program is highly recommended.  Some weekend and evening work is required. This person will answer the deputy investigations editor, but will research for all sections of the Journal, not specifically investigations.
Applications should include a resume and cover letter.
