  • An equally strong ability to report on how Donald Trump, and his administration’s policies, are shaping the international arena
  • Experience covering the Pentagon as an institution and knowing how to build sources there and in key US military commands
  • An analytical approach to major stories and a passion for digging into everything from fine-grain policy issues to big-picture international relations theory
  • At least three years of foreign affairs or military writing experience. Time overseas and proficiency in a language other than English would be a major plus.

  • Ideas for new and creative ways to approach the conventional modes of foreign-affairs writing and an interest in experimenting with new story formats, and
