Bureau of Investigative Journalism seeking new Data Lab Director

    The Bureau of Investigative Journalism is recruiting a director to lead a new project aimed at providing data-led stories to local journalists. The director will build a four-person team, which will work with a network of local journalists and bloggers to identify data that could provide local stories. It is expected that analysis of national-scale datasets by the Lab team will help supply local leads that will be developed by members of the network. 

    Ideal candidates to lead this project are ambitious, entrepreneurial-minded, and have a strong understanding of how technology and data-led analysis can produce stories. The project covers a three year grant period, and is an exciting opportunity for the right candidate to build an innovative, high-profile team working in the emerging data journalism sector.
