Politics and race reporter

FiveThirtyEight is looking for an experienced reporter to join our team and cover the intersection of politics and race. Race is an element in so many political stories, even if the media doesn’t acknowledge as much. We’re interested in making that clear for readers, and in exploring how identity, racism and America’s history on race inform and affect contemporary politics — whether it be a story emerging out of the White House or from the campaign trail. See here for more information, and to apply, please go here.
