Former New York Times editor Jill Abramson has lined up her next gig: a teaching post at Harvard.

Times media reporter Ravi Somayia reported on Thursday that Abramson, whose controversial firing sent shockwaves through the paper and the wider media world, will teach a course in narrative non-fiction at the university in the fall.

Media watchers have been eagerly awaiting to see what Abramson's next move would be since her ouster. She has kept up a public profile, appearing at a string of media awards shows. Politico's Mike Allen also reported that she may write for Vanity Fair.
