Description: The Boston Globe is looking for an experienced biotechnology writer to join an expanded medical-biotech team covering one of the world's most vibrant and respected healthcare communities.

Biotech news in Boston often has national or even international impact -- from the invention of anesthesia at Mass General Hospital to Moderna's vaccine against COVID-19, inventors here frequently change the face of healthcare. And the Globe needs a reporter who understands the science, the business and the context of biotech developments while never losing sight of the people most affected by them.

The reporter will be expected to generate a steady stream of biotech stories ranging from breaking dailies to features and accountability stories developed over longer time periods. The reporter will also be expected to contribute to a weekly special section devoted to medicine and biotechnology.
