The Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL) is a law and policy center devoted to advancing
the public interest in constitutionally limited government, individual liberty, free markets and a
robust civil society.
We are hiring a Research Journalist. This position will be responsible for investigative research
and analysis on relevant policy issues in Wisconsin and, occasionally, across the country. The
findings will be featured in policy briefs, research reports, op-eds, and blog posts.
This is not a legal position. We are seeking WILL’s “storyteller” to play a lead role in
communicating WILL’s lawsuits and policy reports in ways that connect with readers on an
emotional level. This includes helping to create videos, write op-eds and blog posts, and draft
policy reports. The Research Journalist will support our legal work, but also conduct policy
research and writing in areas such as education reform, individual liberty, urban policy,
constitutional rights, and free markets.
The ideal candidate will:
- Have a background in media, communications, journalism, or writing
- Be experienced in communicating complex issues in simple, compelling ways
- Have a passion for good government, education reform, and protecting taxpayers
- Have outstanding writing skills
- Be very outgoing, creative, and willing to work on a team
The salary is very competitive and includes a full complement of benefits.
Interested parties should send a cover letter, resume, three references, and two writing
samples (i.e. policy reports, op-eds, blog posts, etc.) to Stacy Stueck, Executive Director,
Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, 1139 E. Knapp Street, Milwaukee, WI, 53202 or to
