About

The War Horse is seeking a news researcher to comb major publications (The New York Times, BBC, The New Yorker, and other major news outlets). The volunteer will gather links to stories focused on war, trauma, policies and human rights surrounding the Global War on Terror. What’s happening, and how does it affect veterans and service members in a post-9/11 world? The ideal candidate presents all sides of an issue, checks facts and follows developing stories. He or she must be committed to seeking credible sources and know how to cite them effectively. The ideal candidate is familiar with appropriate media library and archive use. He or she is able to work collaboratively. The volunteer must keep detailed records, and be able to write briefs for connected social media. The caliber of your research will broaden our audience, so we appreciate an eye for detail.

Qualifications include:

Prior experience in military, local or student news.

Prior experience in a relevant background (veterans’ affairs, public policy, psychology and/or health).

Must possess a team mentality and a passion for success.
