The Department of Neurology at The University of Texas Dell Medical School in conjunction with Dell Children's Medical Center are recruiting additional academic child neurologists for the new Texas Center for Pediatric Neuroscience in Austin, Texas. The Center will be housed in a new building adjacent to the children's hospital and, when fully staffed, will feature 30 pediatric neurology and neurosurgery faculty members. We seek individuals with excellent clinical skills, a passion for education, and the potential for scholarly contributions. Research support may be available for appropriate individuals. Physicians with expertise in movement disorders, neuromuscular disorders, and neuroimmunology are particularly encouraged to apply, but inquiries from individuals with other interests are also welcome.
The University of Texas Dell Medical School, the first new medical school to be built at a tier one US research university in nearly 50 years, welcomed its first class in 2016. Adult and child neurology residency programs are already in place and expanding. 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 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 on the adjacent University of Texas campus. With 248 beds, Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas is the only freestanding pediatric hospital in the region. It features a level 1 pediatric trauma center, a level 4 neonatal intensive care unit, and a level 4 epilepsy center. Pediatric neuroscience has been designated as one of the hospital's focus areas.
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 and rivers as well as the beautiful adjacent Texas Hill Country provide ample opportunities for outdoor activities.
Applicants should be ABPN certified or, in the case of recent trainees, board eligible in child neurology. We are unable to offer visa waiver eligible positions at this time. Candidates must be eligible for a faculty appointment with the University of Texas at Austin. Hiring is contingent upon obtaining a Texas medical license and the appropriate hospital privileges.
Interested individuals should submit a CV and a summary of their professional interests to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need additional information before applying, please contact E. Steve Roach, MD, Chief of Pediatric Neuroscience and Associate Chair for Operations, Department of Neurology (email@example.com).
