The Department of Neurology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for an Associate or Full Professor position in the non-tenure clinician educator track. Expertise is required in the specific area of epilepsy and must be nationally renowned in this field. While continuing our tradition as a national leader in teaching and research, the new Director will have a record of clinical excellence and will be charged with leading our rapidly expanding clinical epilepsy network into our new flagship Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP), 8 affiliated regional hospitals and multiple outpatient facilities serving the mid-Atlantic region. Applicants must have an M.D. degree or equivalent. Board-certified in both Neurology and Epilepsy.

Teaching responsibilities may include guiding and participating in training and mentoring of medical students, residents, fellows and faculty in the field of epilepsy, neurology and career development.

Clinical responsibilities may include guiding and participating in the acute, chronic and tertiary care of epilepsy patients, EEG interpretation, intracranial electroencephalography, and evaluation of patients for epilepsy surgery, including stereo EEG, Laser Interstitial Thermal Therapy, intra and extra-operative functional brain mapping and neurostimulation, both in implantable devices and in the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit.

Research or scholarship responsibilities may include candidate having a successful track record of scholarship in epilepsy, with a focus on clinical translation, that will complement their position as a clinical leader in Penn Medicine.

The Penn Epilepsy Center (PEC), is one of the world’s leading centers for clinical epilepsy care, teaching and research. The successful candidate will join our established group of epileptologists, Advanced Practice Providers, nurses, technologists, social workers, and clinical trials staff. The Director will have prior experience leading growth and relationship-building across a varied network of both owned and community practices, hospitals, and programs, and be an accomplished administrator, clinician and teacher. The Director will join our thriving, multi-faceted epilepsy research programs.

We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense. The University of Pennsylvania is an EOE. Minorities/women/individuals with disabilities/protected veterans are encouraged to apply.


Welcome to the University of Pennsylvania! Penn is the largest private employer in Philadelphia and is a world-renowned leader in education, research, and innovation.  

Across our 12 highly-regarded schools, more than 25,000 students, and more than 4,000 faculty members, we become one university: a wide-ranging, ever-changing community that draws its strength from a multitude of races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, historical traditions, ages, religions, disabilities, veteran status, interests, perspectives, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

As engines of knowledge and new ideas, universities have the unique potential to define the future rather than be defined by it; to pioneer change rather than merely manage it. To do so requires a plan both visionary and pragmatic. The Penn Compact 2022 motivates community members to innovate, be radically inclusive, and positively impact their local, national, and global communities. 


Penn’s fundamental priorities — increasing access, integrating knowledge and engaging locally, nationally and globally — are supported by the three core values that make us uniquely Penn: inclusion, innovation, and impact. 


Learn about the signature initiatives of the Penn Compact 2022:  




Understanding and appreciating diversity is one of Penn's most important priorities and is fundamental to success in today's world. 


Penn adheres to a policy that prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, creed, national or ethnic origin, citizenship status, age, disability, veteran status, or any other legally protected class.
