After more than four stellar years as our training director, David Donald is leaving IRE to oversee database operations for the Center for Public Integrity in Washington D.C.
It's impossible to overstate what David has brought to our organization, and to the industry. David is a tremendous teacher who has spread the gospel of computer-assisted reporting and investigative reporting to thousands of journalists in the U.S. and throughout the world. On a personal note, my first few months in the job were made immeasurably smoother thanks to David's knowledge and guidance.
That means that IRE is looking for its next training director. The position provides a great opportunity to work with journalists throughout the U.S. and abroad both in a classroom setting and one-on-one.
The director oversees all of IRE and NICAR's world-renowned teaching and training operations, develops new and cutting-edge curriculum and programs, and reports directly to the IRE executive director. The ability to teach both investigative and CAR techniques is essential. A love of travel (both domestically and internationally) is a plus.
