Power, now a professor at Harvard Kennedy School, is not the only candidate for the job.
Foreign Policy reported at the end of November that former U.N. World Food Program executive director Ertharin Cousin topped the list.
However, Axios noted that the former vice president had yet to make a final decision.
Power, who previously served on the National Security Council as Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights, recently penned a Foreign Affairs article in which she deemed President Trump “incompetent.”
“The Trump administration’s response to the most urgent problem in the world today — the coronavirus pandemic — has been worse than that of any other nation,” she wrote.
“Yet the mishandling of the pandemic is just the latest in a string of lapses in basic competence that have called into question U.S. capabilities among both long-standing allies and countries whose partnership Washington may seek in the years to come,” said Power.
It’s not the first time the now 50-year-old has slammed the president’s handling of the pandemic. Earlier this year, she condemned Trump’s decision to cut funding to the World Health Organization, arguing that it was hypocritical and an attempt to deflect from the administration’s failures.
Before working for the U.S. government, Power began her career as a journalist, reporting from Bosnia, East Timor, Kosovo, Rwanda, Sudan, and Zimbabwe. She was also a columnist for TIME and a contributor to the Atlantic, the New Yorker, and the New York Review of Books.
Power won the Pulitzer Prize in 2003 for her book “A Problem from Hell: America and the Age of Genocide.”
Fox News has reached out to the Biden Transition Team and is awaiting further confirmation.
