ALASKA NEUROPSYCHOLOGIST POSITION - Full or Part-Time
Neurobehavior North, Inc. is a private practice located in Palmer, Alaska. We are currently looking to hire a second neuropsychologist to keep up with increasing demands for clinical and forensic neuropsychological evaluation services. We currently provide services to geriatric, adult, and older adolescent individuals. However, opportunities for pediatric evaluations are also available for candidates with appropriate background and training. We see a range of neuropsychological populations including traumatic and acquired brain injury, dementia, complex mental health, intellectual and developmental disability, and medically-associated neurocognitive disorders.
Patient referrals come from neurology, psychiatry, primary care, vocational rehabilitation, and other sources from many locations across Alaska with developing opportunities to travel for remote evaluations. There are opportunities to participate in didactic training and presentations through local service providers, universities, and other entities. Our practice has a unique rural setting with opportunity to write from home.
Palmer, Alaska is in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley, about 50 miles north of Anchorage. There is an abundance of outdoor activities close by. There are two small new ski areas (one downhill and one lighted cross-country) within 10 minutes of our office with hiking, biking, rafting, fishing, camping, etc. nearby. Palmer is a "classic" small town and its sister city, Wasilla, is growing rapidly to include many retail, dining, and entertainment options. Plus, the "big city" of Anchorage is not too far away.
Candidates must have a doctorate in psychology with completion of a 2-year post-doctoral residency in neuropsychology. Candidates must have or be able to complete board certification within two years of hire. Licensure in Alaska is required prior to starting. Compensation is production based. We offer insurance reimbursement, retirement contributions, flexible schedule and time off, resources for testing and evaluation materials, and a training/continuing education stipend.
Early career neuropsychologists and those completing postdoctoral training are encouraged to apply. If interested, please submit a letter of interest, two example de-identified neuropsychological evaluation reports, and a curriculum vitae to:
