Job Details





Brigham and Women’s Hospital is seeking a board-certified Neurologist (M.D.) with an interest in headache/pain neurology, preferably with subspecialty certification or headache neurology training. The candidate will be hired as an Assistant or Associate Neurologist with inpatient and outpatient clinical duties but is also expected to participate in quality improvement initiatives and/or teaching of residents, fellows, and physician assistants, and/or clinic research.  


Clinical duties are divided between two locations, the main campus at the Brigham and Woman’s Hospital in Boston and a site 15-20 miles south of the city in South Weymouth MA. More than half of the time will be spent at the south shore location.  A weekly clinic at the Boston location is dedicated to headache/pain neurology. Clinics at the south shore satellite are weighted towards headache/pain cases with a mix of general neurology. Two to three days a month are spent covering inpatient and emergency room neurological consultation at the South Shore Hospital, an affiliate institution.


Appointment at the Harvard Medical School will be commensurate with experience, training, and achievements. This will be a part time Harvard Academic Appointment, which carries an obligation to teach within the Harvard community a minimum of 50 hours per year.  We anticipate the successful candidate will be qualified for appointment at the Instructor, Assistant Professor, or Associate Professor level. A commitment to clinical excellence and to clinical teaching is sought.


Applications from women and representatives of under-represented minority groups are welcomed and encouraged to apply.


Candidates should possess a Massachusetts license to practice medicine. Additional conditions of employment are provided via this link:
