Clinical Neuropsychology position
(academic appointment rank open)
Barrow Neurological Institute (BNI), Phoenix, Arizona, consistently ranked in the Top 20 institutions for neurology and neurosurgery by US News, has an opening for a Clinical Neuropsychologist. Persons with expertise and interest in neuroimaging and rehabilitation and recovery of individuals with head injury are especially welcome to apply. The selected individual will primarily conduct outpatient neuropsychological evaluations.
Incumbents interested in research can apply for start-up funding through BNI. Collaborations with neurology, neuroradiology, neuropathology, and neurosurgery at BNI, and scientists at other local institutions, are encouraged.
Faculty members in the Neuropsychology department and the Center for Transitional Neuro-Rehabilitation participate in training neuropsychology residents (BNI currently takes 2-3 fellows per year in an APPCN-approved program). Candidates must be licensable as a psychologist in Arizona. If not already board-certified in neuropsychology, the individual will be expected to be ABPP-certified within three years of employment.
The BNI is home to the world-renowned Muhammad Ali movement disorders center, an endowed ALS center, and a large Alzheimer's center, including clinical trials. There is a busy EMU/epilepsy surgery program. MEG and neuroimaging research opportunities are available. Neurosurgery (home also to the Center for Neuromodulation) is one of the largest departments in the country, drawing patients from all over the world. The neuropsychology program has grown to include two rehabilitation psychologists.
The institution offers a highly competitive salary and excellent fringe benefits. Phoenix enjoys wonderful recreation, sports and arts opportunities, a relatively low cost of living for a major city, and given its climate, is a major tourist destination.
Interested candidates should send a letter of interest and curriculum vitae to:
