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 neuropsychologist to keep up with increasing demands for clinical and forensic neuropsychological evaluation services in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley and around the State of Alaska. We provide services to geriatric, adult, and older adolescent individuals. However, opportunities for pediatric evaluations are also available for those 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-related 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.
Here's the cool stuff: We want you to know that we are a family-run practice in a growing area looking to better serve our community. Palmer, Alaska is in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley about 50 miles north of Anchorage. We focus on balancing work with family and personal time. There is an abundance of outdoor activities close by, which we love. There are two new ski areas (one downhill and one cross-country) within 10 minutes of our office with hiking, biking, rafting, fishing, camping, etc. nearby. Palmer is a "classic" small town and its neighbor 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. We emphasize board certification and expect that goal from candidates. 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 send Dr. Logan your CV and a letter of interest to get the process started.
