The Washington Post is seeking a researcher to support its morning newsletters on the politics and policy concerning cybersecurity and technology. These newsletters are primarily aimed at Washington decision-makers on Capitol Hill, K Street and in the executive branch.

The successful candidate should have a keen interest in the complicated and growing relationship between tech companies and Washington; be able to juggle multiple tasks on a daily deadline; and write clearly and smoothly. The focus of this researcher will be supporting the anchors of these newsletters while aggregating content from a wide variety of news sources and social media.
