Journalists with a good understanding of statistics, statistical analysis and database management are encouraged to apply for two positions with the BBC.
BBC News is hiring one senior and one junior data journalist to join its visual journalism team. The new, multiplatform unit brings together journalists, developers and online and television designers to provide compelling visual coverage of significant stories.
The team seeks creative data reporters to boost its data journalism output. Both positions require working knowledge of visualization tools like Tableau, Refine and Fusion Tables; understanding of basic scripting, HTML, SQL and R is also desirable. The senior position also requires newsroom and managerial experience.
The deadline to apply is April 23.
