The new researcher would serve in a news role and would help tackle the bureau's volume of work and enhance its output.

The researcher would be a native Russian speaker, whose duties would include:

  • reviewing Russian newspapers and news websites for story ideas, and for commentary and analysis related to stories being written by the bureau's correspondents;
  • monitoring television briefings;
  • transcribing interviews from Russian to English as required;
  • providing translation and interpretation from Russian to English if and when required;
  • helping to gather background information on breaking news;
  • searching databases and social media in connection with stories;
  • helping to find sources and setting up interviews with sources for the bureau's correspondents.

We are expecting to launch several projects in the New Year examining Russia's increasingly influential status in the global arena, life outside of Russia's big cities, and the long-term impact of Western sanctions on the Russian economy.

Having an additional Russian-speaking researcher for a period of 6 months would greatly improve our capacity to successfully execute these projects.
