Job Description

The Washington Post is seeking an experienced editor to help lead its growing Climate and Environment team, which aggressively covers climate change domestically and abroad.

We're looking for an energetic journalist, familiar with Washington, who knows how to break news and drive coverage of the Biden administration during one of the most consequential periods for climate coverage in our lifetimes. This person will take the lead on climate policy on a team that also has editors focused on investigations and climate solutions. A collaborative spirit is essential, as this person will work with desks across the newsroom to deliver scoops on policy, groundbreaking reports on climate adaptation, and multimedia accountability stories.

The Post strives to provide its readers with high-quality, trustworthy news and information while constantly innovating. That mission is best served by a diverse, multi-generational workforce with varied life experiences and perspectives. All cultures and backgrounds are welcomed.

This position is based in our Washington newsroom. Once we resume normal operations, it will not be eligible for remote work.

Candidates should upload a résumé, cover letter and three clips (as PDFs) to our job portal by May 3. All application materials can be uploaded to the same field. The cover letter should be addressed to National Editor Steven Ginsberg, Deputy National Editor Lori Montgomery, and Managing Editors Tracy Grant and Krissah Thompson.
