Maureen Dowd, the New York Times columnist, has joined the New York Times Magazine as a staff writer, the newspaper announced on Monday.

"Maureen is one of The Times's signature writers. Period. And as we work toward a redesign that will put new emphasis on stylish, long-form narratives, she'll be a brilliant addition to our team," Jake Silverstein, the magazine's editor, said in a memo to staff. "While I can't disclose any specific assignments yet, I can reveal that Maureen's subject matter for the magazine will range far afield from her current bailiwick of politics, foreign affairs, Hollywood, and edible marijuana."

In addition to her new role, Dowd will also continue to write her weekly Sunday opinion column.

Dowd began her journalism career in 1974 at The Washington Star before moving to Time Magazine in 1981. She joined The New York Times in 1983 as a metro desk reporter. In 1986, she became a correspondent in the Washington bureau and served as White House correspondent, among other positions. She joined the Op-Ed page as a columnist in 1995 and in 1999, was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary for her columns on the impact of President Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Over the course of her Times career, Ms. Dowd has covered eight presidential campaigns starting with Geraldine Ferraro's vice presidential bid while she was assigned to the metro desk. She previously wrote the "On Washington" column for The Times Magazine.
