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 Bilingual (English/Spanish) Clinical Neuropsychologist. The selected individual will primarily conduct outpatient neuropsychological evaluations (including of monolingual Spanish or bilingual English/Spanish) individuals with known or suspected brain disorders.
