The award-winning Los Angeles Business Journal is seeking an ambitious, proactive reporter to cover the booming biotech and health care industries in the region. With three major research universities, a number of highly successful entrepreneurs in the space, and a number of leading teaching hospitals, it is a beat that is under-covered locally. As a result, there is an opportunity for the right reporter to quickly become established as the leading source of information and news on industries that have profound impact on the local economy and the health care market nationally.

Health care and/or biotech reporting experience is highly valued. Also valued is a demonstrated ability to dig for stories, a sense of skepticism, and curiosity, and the ability to engage and enlighten readers. We’re looking for someone who will hit the ground running and integrate quickly in our highly productive newsroom.

The Business Journal is in a period of transformation, redefining how we deliver news and analysis both in our core print product and in our redesigned digital offerings. Creative thinkers are highly valued: Reporters are expected to develop stories of substance while also thinking about visual and graphical elements that can enhance their impact across all platforms.
