University of Nevada seeks business journalism professor

February 16, 2009

The Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno seeks an outstanding journalist to design and lead a new program in business journalism.

Its ad states, “Our ideal candidate will combine broad experience in business coverage with an interest in emerging issues of the green economy, economic sustainability and fiscal stress. We are looking for someone who has a distinguished record of publication in print, broadcast or online media and who is energized by the challenges facing journalism today.

“He or she should have extensive experience in journalism or journalism education and be equipped to teach in-depth reporting, both explanatory and investigative. Like all specialties in our school, the business curriculum will be expected to explore new forms of content and delivery.

“We believe the green economy will be one of the next decade’s biggest stories, and we seek a candidate who can bring together policy-makers, business people and journalists to discuss and debate key issues. This emphasis will complement our Master’s program in environmental journalism and our chair will also be able to work with faculty in our College of Business Administration and our Academy for the Environment.

“The chair was made possible by a gift from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, and the person who fills it will be expected to collaborate with Reynolds chairs in business journalism at other universities. The salary will be highly competitive.”
