In 1987, she began her journalism career as a reporter for the American Lawyer in New York. She joined the Journal in July 1988 as a news assistant in the New York bureau and became a reporter, covering law, in October 1989. Prior to moving to the Boston bureau in April 1999, Ms. Dockser Marcus had been a reporter in the Journal’s Tel Aviv bureau and had covered Israel and the Middle East since July 1991.
In 2005, Ms. Dockser Marcus won a Pulitzer Prize in the Beat Reporting category for her extensive and influential Journal leders and stories of state-of-the-art cancer treatments and the affecting odysseys of those who navigate through these treatment options. Ms. Dockser Marcus won first place in the New York State Bar Association's 1990 Media Awards Competition for a group of legal feature stories that covered such subjects as environmental liability for toxic-waste dumping, litigation over privacy rights and new developments in libel law. She received an honorable mention in the 1999 Benjamin Fine Awards for Outstanding Education Reporting in the single article category for her August 1999 article, “New Weights Can Alter SAT Scores.” In March 2005, Ms. Dockser Marcus was awarded the Eugene S.

Ms. Dockser Marcus is the author of a book, published in 2000 by Little, Brown & Co., titled “The View From Nebo: How Archaeology Is Rewriting the Bible and Reshaping the Middle East.” The book grew out of several pieces she wrote for the Journal when she was a Middle East correspondent for the paper from 1991 to 1998. She is also the author of “Jerusalem 1913: The Origins of the Arab-Israeli Conflict,” published in 2007 by Viking, which also grew out of reporting she did when she was a Middle East correspondent for the paper.
