    Al Jazeera English tells the stories that other networks don’t tell. Headquartered in the Middle East, we give a voice to the voiceless in under-reported regions with journalism that is honest, courageous and distinctive.

    On air for less than two years, our News and Programme Divisions are already winning major international TV Awards. Now we want the best talent worldwide for our Broadcast Centres in Doha, Kuala Lumpur, Washington DC, London, and our 23 news bureaus.

    Our News Division wants skilled and experienced journalists who wish to challenge the status quo. We welcome applications from all nationalities and ethnicities, but you must be fluent in the English language.


    Working to the Duty News Editor, our web journalists edit and write text, edit images and upload video material. You should be experienced in subbing and text production with an excellent standard of written English; knowledge of website content management systems desirable but not essential.

    To apply for any of the vacancies, please send a cover letter and current CV to internationaljobs@aljazeera.net

    You must show the reference and location that you are applying for in the subject line. Closing date for all applications: October 2008.

    Great job for someone who isn't too attached to their head.

    Great job.... if you can stand the 110-degree heat. It's like Las Vegas without the strip.

    Actually, Qatar is a moderate, westernized emirate along exactly the same lines as Dubai. Not quite as big or as gaudy. One of the US's staunchest allies in the region, it is, in fact, along with Bahrain, one of our largest forward staging areas for the war in Iraq. One of our largest air bases is there, just south of Doha; as is the huge Gulf R&R facility for our troops to the north of that city, who rotate in 72 hours at a time.

    There are also a number of American university affiliates in Doha: Carnegie Mellon University, Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, Texas A&M University, Virginia Commonwealth University, and Cornell University’s Weill Medical College. Northwestern is opening a branch campus there, too.

    Al-Jazeera has some of the most modern, best-equipped facilities in the world. I know this because I've been there. I've also worked with some folks from Al-Jazeera, and they were perfectly nice and quite hospitable.

    In fact a one- or two-year gig in Doha might not be a bad thing for someone with an adventurous spirit who wants to see the world and hasn't yet had their head or their heart emptied by prejudice or ignorance.

    And the summer climate is a lot more like Houston than it is Las Vegas. 120+, and humid.

    Rumor has it their new soccer beat writer is a guy by the name of Osama Bin Laden.
  9. I talked to Richard Roth a few weeks before he left for Qatar, and he was extremely excited about the move.

    One hell of a guy.
