Boston Medical Center’s Division of Child Neurology is recruiting a fulltime faculty member who is boarded/board-eligible in child neurology.


We are seeking an individual who shares our mission to provide exceptional care for all children and their families regardless of culture and life circumstances. For more than 100 years, Boston Medical Center has been driven by a commitment to care for all people, providing not only traditional medical care, but also programs and services that enhance the patient’s overall health and wellbeing. Our division is a uniquely collaborative group that shares a vision of patient care, education, professional growth, research and work-life balance.


The Division provides clinical care to all children needing neurological care, whether they live in our local community, in rural New England, or across the globe. The Division has multiple specialty clinics including epilepsy, sleep, movement disorders, concussion, and international health. The pediatric and adult neurology teams work closely to provide uninterrupted care to youth as they transition into adulthood.


Well before the occurrence of the recent pandemic, The Division of Child Neurology developed telehealth strategies to overcome barriers to care access. We were one of the first practices in the country providing telehealth into patient’s homes, schools, or places of employment to ensure better access and a more individualized approach to care.


Boston Medical Center is the primary teaching hospital for Boston University School of Medicine. Our child neurology training program, which has 6 residents—2 taken each year , was founded over 50 years ago and has a long history of training excellent clinicians, many who have become leaders in the field. We have a joint training program in pediatric and adult sleep medicine. As a faculty member you will have the opportunity to teach medical students, residents, fellows, and faculty.


Boston University and Boston Medical Center work collaboratively to provide mentorship and career development for academicians and researchers of all types. (Boston University Medical Group Professional Development )

The campus provides an extremely collegial environment that fosters multidisciplinary translational and implementation research. (Clinical and Translational Institute )


The Division and the greater campus are committed to providing the flexibility and support systems that allow employees to have an exciting career while fulfilling the joys and demands of life outside the medical center. Here you will find a dedicated faculty flexibility program, family care supports, a vibrant wellness program, and helpful employee assistance services. Most importantly, you will work with a team of faculty, residents and staff that have a deep respect for each other and welcome new members who will enhance our breadth of innovation, talent, and diversity.

The Difference Is Our DNA

What compelled the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to award Boston University a grant to fight newborn mortality in Zambia? Why did Martin Luther King, Jr. adopt BU as a place where he could hone his message of justice and equality? And what is the catalyst that prompts 32,557 students from 135 countries to call BU their home every semester? It’s in our DNA: an inherent desire in each of our students, faculty, and staff to vigorously and dauntlessly pursue knowledge—and embrace the unlimited possibilities that come with it.

A Community Unlike Any Other

As you can see below, it takes people, ideas, and a little luck (Boston, you’re our town) to make BU what it is today: one of the most dynamic universities in the world.

Celebrated thinkers: On any given day, students will find themselves mesmerized by Nobel Prize winners, a poet laureate, and the first biomedical engineer ever to receive a MacArthur Foundation “Genius Award,” among others.

Extraordinary teaching: When a classroom starts to percolate with new ideas, it’s because our faculty of scholars and accomplished practitioners know how to ignite students’ imaginations. That’s why we reward our best teachers with BU’s most prestigious honor: The Metcalf Cup and Prize.

Groundbreaking research: With faculty dedicated to a creative, interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, BU has become a leading global research institution—propelled forward by over $350 million a year in sponsored program revenue.

World-class students: Elite students from all 50 states and 135 countries pursue higher education on BU campuses in Boston and at programs in L.A., D.C., and more than 30 other cities on six continents.

A city within a city: Today, 80% of our undergrads live on campus, which could explain the 525 student activity groups alone.

The greatest college town in the world: Boston. ’Nuff said.
