Economy Reporter - based in Beijing

The Wall Street Journal is looking for an enterprising reporter to cover China's economy. The successful candidate will be able to explore the world's second largest economy with detailed and insightful reporting.

The job involves covering the numbers but also getting beyond them to examine the forces driving China's growth and the weaknesses putting it at risk — one of the world's great stories.

We're looking for someone who can pursue all that and more.
