The Leonard C. Goodman Institute for Investigative Reporting is dedicated to pursuing in-depth investigative projects that advance democracy and economic justice, amplify the work of social justice movements, and hold government and corporations accountable. Goodman investigations have the power to unearth corruption, impact legislation, and change the public narrative. Through the Goodman Institute, In These Timesmakes good on its founding belief that a crusading press and an informed public can create change.
This is a one-year, part-time remote position with flexible, project-driven scheduling. The typical time commitment will be 10-20 hours a week, but may be significantly higher in advance of major deadlines. Fellows are expected to produce 2-3 longform investigative pieces and related web stories/multimedia pieces. All stories will be published in In These Times or on InTheseTimes.com. Fellows may write for other outlets but will have 1-2 areas of investigative focus on which they report exclusively for In These Times. Publishing with In These Times is an opportunity to reach our 50,000 monthly print subscribers and 500,000 web visitors.
Topic areas of interest to the Goodman Institute include, but are not limited to: Corporate influence on public policy; labor practices; the war lobby and military contracting; privatization of public infrastructure; the dismantling of the social safety net; environmental justice; Wall Street.
