The Wall Street Journal

Health Business Bureau Chief
The Wall Street Journal’s Health & Science group is looking for an enterprising editor to help lead our coverage of the business of healthcare. You will manage a team of reporters covering hospitals, health insurance, healthcare costs, the intersection of medical care and technology, and the implementation of health policy.

Healthcare encompasses nearly one-fifth of our nation’s economy, and includes some of the largest publicly traded companies and nonprofit institutions in the world. They merge and acquire; they provide products and services that can mean life or death for consumers; and they bill governments, insurers and individuals trillions of dollars.

As the leader of this team, you will drive coverage that impacts every single reader, as patients, as investors and as taxpayers. You will help reporters on your team and across bureaus conceptualize, dig up and deliver best-in-class business journalism. You will drive daily coverage, and you will lead projects or major coverage story lines, talking through stories with editors and strategizing with reporters. You will work with visual, audio, video and strategy colleagues; help manage our planning; and edit copy.
