The Wall Street Journal

Numbers Columnist
The Wall Street Journal is seeking a writer for its “Numbers” column, one of the news department’s most prominent and popular features. Each week you will captivate and intrigue the world’s most numerate readership with insightful and counter-intuitive takes on the numbers that shape our understanding of the world. The numbers can come from science, health, medicine, sports, entertainment, politics, geography, finance, economics and everyday life. Your column will explore where these numbers originate, what they mean, what they omit, how they’re used, and how they’re abused. They can be torn from today’s headlines, extracted from ancient history, or uncovered in the remotest realms of science.
