Slate's Washington, D.C. office is hiring an intern to work on data reporting, data visualizations, and interactives with our interactives editor. Candidates must be full-time students in college or graduate school who are available at least two full days per week. This is a position for journo-geeks with sharp news judgment, keen math and writing skills, and interest in computer science and its applications to journalism. The intern will be responsible for pitching story ideas; hunting down, structuring, and manipulating data; testing and critiquing new productions; writing data stories; and producing his or her own interactives and visualizations. Candidates must know how to use Excel and HTML. Skills in Javascript, JSON, XML, jQuery, graphic design, and FOIA requests are a plus.

To apply, email a cover letter that clearly outlines your availability, a resume, and links to writing samples, interactives, graphics, etc. to chris.kirk@slate.com, by Jan. 10.
