The Los Angeles Times is looking for a seasoned reporter to cover the Middle East.

This correspondent will anchor our coverage of the ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Syria, as well as monitoring the turbulent progress of democracy in Egypt, North Africa and the Gulf. More than that, we are looking for an accomplished writer who is capable of plunging into the nuances and complexities of these cultures, governments and people. 

The successful candidate will be the one who avoids the office and wanders back roads to bring us stories we will not have the power to forget.

Fluency in Arabic is strongly preferred. Home base is negotiable. Please apply to Kim Murphy, assistant managing editor for foreign and national news, at editjobs@latimes.com.
