Department of Neurology - Dell Medical School - The University of Texas at Austin
Location: Austin, TX
Open: Dec 21, 2017

Description
The Department of Neurology at The University of Texas at Austin, Dell Medical School in conjunction with the Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas are recruiting several academic child neurologists to form a new Division of Child Neurology in Austin, Texas. We seek individuals with excellent clinical skills, a passion for education, and the potential for scholarly contributions. Research support is available for appropriate individuals. Physicians with expertise in epilepsy, movement disorders, neuromuscular disorders, and neuroimmunology are particularly encouraged to apply, but individuals with other interests will be considered.



The University of Texas at Austin, Dell Medical School, the first new medical school to be built at a tier one US research university in nearly 50 years, welcomed its first class in 2016. Adult and child neurology residency programs are already in place. We are committed to redesigning academic medicine and revolutionizing how people get and stay healthy by educating leaders, developing new models of care, and advancing innovation from health products to health care delivery. The school is also home to the Mulva Clinic for the Neurosciences, established by a $50 million gift from the Mulva Family Foundation; it is part of the collaborative scientific community of departments, centers, and institutes on the adjacent University of Texas campus. With 248 beds, Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas is the only freestanding pediatric hospital in the region. It features a level 1 pediatric trauma center, a level 4 neonatal intensive care unit, and a level 4 epilepsy center. Pediatric neuroscience has been designated as one of the hospital's focus areas.

Austin is the 11th most populous city in the US, and for the last two years it has ranked # 1 in the US News & World Report's \u201cBest US Places to Live\u201d survey. Austin is a vibrant, socially conscious university city that is known for its live music scene, cultural diversity, and international festivals such as South by Southwest (SXSW). Nearby lakes and rivers as well as the beautiful adjacent Texas Hill Country provide ample opportunities for outdoor activities.

Applicants should be ABPN certified or, in the case of recent trainees, board eligible in child neurology. We are unable to offer visa waiver eligible positions at this time.
