Academic Pediatric Neurosurgery - Austin, Texas

The Department of Neurosurgery at University of Texas Dell Medical School, in conjunction with the Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas, are recruiting academic pediatric neurosurgery faculty at all ranks. We seek individuals with excellent clinical skills, a passion for education, and a demonstrated record of scholarly contributions. Research support is available for appropriate individuals. Candidates with expertise in surgical management of epilepsy, spine or movement disorders are encouraged to apply, and individuals with other clinical interests will also be strongly considered.

The University of Texas Dell Medical School welcomed its first class in 2016 and is the first new medical school established at a tier one US research university in nearly 50 years. 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 healthcare 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 focused on advancing basic, translational and clinical neurosciences on the University of Texas at Austin campus. With 248 beds, Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas is the only freestanding pediatric hospital in the region, featuring level 1 pediatric trauma, level 4 neonatal intensive care unit, and level 4 epilepsy centers. Advanced neurosurgical technologies such as IMRIS intraoperative MRI-OR suite, laser ablation, ROSA and MEG are available. Neuroscience is a main hospital focus area, and an additional 35,000 ft2 for clinical neurosciences is being constructed.

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 “Best US Places to Live” 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, rivers and the beautiful adjacent Texas Hill Country provide ample opportunities for outdoor activities.


Applicants should be certified by the American Board of Pediatric Neurological Surgery, or board-eligible graduates of an ACGME-accredited neurosurgery residency and pediatric neurosurgery fellowship. We are unable to offer visa waiver eligible positions at this time. Hiring is contingent upon obtaining a Texas medical license and the appropriate hospital privileges. All candidates are required to be eligible for a faculty appointment at the University of Texas at Austin.
