The Salt Lake Tribune seeks an experienced, self-motivated reporter interested in covering Utah’s natural environment from a news perspective, from the challenges of water use and planning in the second-driest state in the nation to Utah’s fight to keep the greater sage grouse off the Endangered Species List and sportsmen’s efforts to impact public policy and land management. The beat includes the State Department of Natural Resources, the State Division of Wildlife Resources and Utah’s national and state parks and monuments. Teamwork and collaboration are essential to this beat, which includes a general assignment role. This reporter will work hand-in-hand with another public lands and environment reporter, and will provide backup for other reporters on the team — helping us tackle topics from health care to the state’s dismal per-pupil spending. This reporter will use social media and other strategies and tools that engage readers online. Send your five best clips of varying lengths to Managing Editor Sheila R. McCann, firstname.lastname@example.org. Include cover letter, resume and social media handles. Electronic applications only. Please, no hard copies or phone calls.
