Sacto Bee seeking investigative reporter

Hey, somebody's hiring. From Poynter:

The Sacramento Bee is the leading news organization in the capital of California, a state boasting one of the world’s largest economies. We're looking to hire an investigative reporter to focus on our region and the state as a whole. Our goal is short- and long-term investigations that make a difference in the lives of our readers and that cause change. This reporter also would weigh in on deeper reporting attached to breaking news, with an emphasis on digging up stories and angles exclusive to The Bee. Interested applicants should send a cover letter, resume, references and 6-10 clips showing versatility and initiative, preferably via online links, to Amy Pyle, The Bee's Investigations and Projects Editor.

Also from the Bee: Former NBA star Kevin Johnson was elected mayor of Sacramento, winning in all but the city's core.

Also hiring: UC Irvine is looking for a tenure-track professor in literary journalism.
