Assistant Professor of Neuropsychology (in Neurology)
The Neuropsychology Service within the Department of Neurology at Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC), nationally renowned for research, clinical care, and education, is seeking two (2) full-time neuropsychologists at the Assistant Professor level. One of the positions is for a bilingual (Spanish-English) neuropsychologist whose caseload will include at least 50% Spanish-speaking patients.
The Neuropsychology Service provides outpatient neuropsychological evaluations to adults and older adults. Clinicians will play a significant role in training, including supervision and teaching of neuropsychology externs and post-doctoral fellows. While clinical care and training will be the primary responsibilities, CUIMC has a well-developed and integrated clinical research program. All clinicians have the opportunity to collaborate on research projects without the need to secure their own research funding.
Candidates must have a doctoral degree in neuropsychology or clinical psychology from an APA accredited program with an APA accredited pre-doctoral internship and have completed a formal two-year postdoctoral fellowship or equivalent in clinical neuropsychology. Applicants should be licensed or license-eligible in the State of New York.
Candidates should be board-certified or eligible for ABPP board certification in clinical neuropsychology; 2-5 years post training clinical experience and expertise in the assessment of dementia is preferred. However, candidates from a broader range of training will be considered.
Minimum Degree Required:
- M.D. and/or Ph.D.
Cover Letter, Curriculum Vitae and a minimum of three (maximum of five) letters of reference.
