Deputy Editor, Middle East
Mideast Deputy Bureau Chief
The Mideast bureau is seeking a deputy bureau chief to help spearhead coverage and tell ambitious stories from a turbulent region.
The role, based in Beirut, would be that of a player-coach -- someone who excels at balancing the pull of one's own projects with the demands expected of an editor who shares ideas and devotes time to difficult stories. Above all, this is someone who leads by example.
The Middle East is part of a larger geopolitical mosaic, and the deputy should be well versed in Washington policy. He or she should also be ready to contribute to and coordinate with other bureaus on multi-bylined stories.
In the bureau chief's absence, the deputy would manage the bureau -- driving coverage of breaking stories but also making judgement calls on security for reporting trips.
The reward for this challenging role is having a hand in shaping the Journal's widely-read Middle East coverage, from its most cosmopolitan of cities, Beirut. We expect to fill the job by the end of this year to allow for a brief transition with current staff.
Deadline: Aug. 31 2017
