Faculty Position Cognitive Neurology


Position Summary: The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Division of Cognitive Neurology / Memory Disorders is seeking a full-time, fixed term faculty to join our expanding Cognitive and Behavioral Neurology Division. The position can be at assistant, associate or full professor rank depending on experience and eligibility. This academic appointment requires providing tertiary clinical services, participating in clinical research activities, and teaching residents, fellows, and medical students the principles of cognitive and behavioral neurology.

The primary responsibility will be evaluating and managing patients across the spectrum of neurocognitive disorders in the UNC Memory Disorders Clinic. Clinical responsibilities will also include rotations on the Neurology Consult service and staffing the Neurology Resident Clinic. Our expanding Division includes 3 neurologists, 2 APPs, a neuropsychologist and dedicated nursing and psychometry support. Social work support is anticipated starting summer of 2021.

A wealth of research opportunities are provided by established programs in NIH-sponsored research consortia participation involving Dementia with Lewy bodies and Frontotemporal Degeneration. The division has also been designated a Research Center of Excellence by the Lewy Body Dementia Association. An expanding portfolio of clinical trial opportunities in Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, several collaborations with a robust and research-intensive Division of Geriatrics, and access to state-of-the-art neuroimaging facilities, including a 7T MRI scanner and hybrid PET-MRI scanner are other potential research avenues. A newly created North Carolina Brain Health Registry in conjunction with Duke University, Wake Forest University, and other academic centers also offers a state-wide research network ready-made for potential collaboration.

Dedicated teaching at all levels is required, including medical students, residents, and fellows through lectures, seminars, conferences, and grand rounds. Participation in clinical research and extramural scholarly activities in the form of publications and service to professional organizations is expected.

Educational Requirements: Candidate should possess an M.D. or equivalent degree and have completed both a Neurology residency and a Behavioral Neurology & Neuropsychiatry, Geriatric Neurology, or equivalent fellowship.
