Assistant Professor (WOT) - Pediatric Neurologist
The Department of Neurology at the University of Washington School of Medicine is seeking to hire two outstanding pediatric clinical and research Neurologists to join the Division of Pediatric Neurology at Seattle Children’s Hospital. This is a full-time 12-month service period (July 1 – June 30) appointment, at the Assistant Professor rank without tenure (WOT), by reason of clinical and research funding in the clinician-scientist academic pathway. Both positions will provide general care in pediatric neurology in the outpatient services clinics and will attend on inpatient service at Seattle Children's Hospital. Both positions are expected to have secured grant funding for research projects. Both roles will supervise and work with pediatric neurology and other residents while evaluating and caring for patients hospitalized or in the emergency department at Seattle Children's Hospital. University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service.
The anticipated start date of these appointments is Jan 1, 2022.
