Assistant Professor of Clinical Neurology at CHOP

Philadelphia, PA
Open Date:
Jul 21, 2022
Close Date:
Jul 21, 2024

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the Department of Neurology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seek candidates for several Assistant Professor positions in the non-tenure academic clinician track. Applicants must have an M.D. or equivalent degree. We are recruiting board-eligible or board-certified Child Neurologists to facilitate the new Neuroscience Center’s expansion.

The Neuroscience Center integrates world-renowned specialists in Child Neurology and Neurosurgery to provide precise diagnoses, individualized clinical care, and cutting-edge surgical treatments to achieve groundbreaking discoveries.

Teaching responsibilities may include bedside teaching and oversight of observers, medical students, residents, and fellows in a clinical setting, and formal lecture opportunities within the department.

Clinical responsibilities may include a blend of outpatient clinic in the CHOP satellites and inpatient service at the CHOP Philadelphia Campus as well as the Middleman Family Pavilion at the CHOP King of Prussia Campus. CHOP Neurology satellite outpatient clinics include several Pennsylvania-based locations in Chalfont, Abington, Lancaster, Bryn Mawr, and King of Prussia, as well as New Jersey-based practice locations in Voorhees and Princeton. 

We seek child neurologists with broad clinical skills who are interested in a dynamic practice combining clinical excellence with academic and teaching opportunities. Neurologists with expertise in epilepsy/clinical neurophysiology, headache, neonatal neurology, critical care neurology, and inpatient neurology are especially encouraged to apply.

Program Highlights:

Join a team of 63 Child Neurology attending physicians and scientists. 

Our ACGME-accredited 5-year child neurology residency program matches 7 residents per year.

The CHOP Philadelphia Campus is home to a dedicated 24-bed inpatient Neuroscience Unit staffed by an interdisciplinary team with specialized training in pediatric neuroscience. This state-of-the-art unit houses the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit and is specially equipped to meet the unique medical and surgical needs of infants, children, and young adults with neurological and neurosurgical conditions. The CHOP Philadelphia Campus is also home to large neonatal, pediatric, and cardiac intensive care units, along with extensive ED and Ward neurology consultation.

The Pennsylvania-based CHOP satellites are located in the suburbs of Philadelphia. The CHOP King of Prussia Hospital opened in January 2022 and is 45 minutes from the main campus. The goal of the hospital is to increase access for patients to high-quality care by CHOP providers convenient to their homes. Additional child neurologists will allow for expansion of inpatient neurologic care and a 4-bed epilepsy monitoring unit in this new community hospital.

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.
