Do you have a knack for finding secret "locals only" spots? Have you never lived in a city for longer than a year? Are you open to trying anything once, including jetting around the world as a New York Times reporter? If any of those apply to you, the Times as their Travel Writer at Large.

The paper regularly puts out a feature called "," covering natural and manmade wonders that deserve a special trip, or at least a pin to your #Wanderlust board. For the first time, the NYT is actually hiring someone to go to all 52 places and report on them. As they put it:

"We are seeking a correspondent who will go to every destination on our list and tell us the story of each place and the story of life on the road. The ideal candidate is a permanent student of life and astute documentarian of the world. This person should have a well-worn passport, the ability to parachute into a place and distill its essence and to render a compelling tale with words and images."

Does every part of that description have you internally shouting, "Uh, ME?!" Learn more about the listing and apply .
