Job Description

Classification Title:

Assistant/Associate Professor; Division of Epilepsy

Job Description:

The Division of Epilepsy in the Department of Neurology at University of Florida announces an outstanding new faculty opportunity for an early-career epilepsy neurologist with solid clinical skills and an established research interest. MD-PhD qualifications are desirable but not essential and all candidates will have at least one year of post-residency fellowship training in epilepsy and EEG.

The candidate will join a well-established epilepsy group comprising five full-time and three part-time adult neurologists and one faculty neuroscientist, complemented by three advanced practice nurses and supported by neurosurgery, neuropsychology, neuropathology and neuroradiology that together comprise the UF Comprehensive Epilepsy Program. The incoming candidate is guaranteed a 35:65 split between research and clinical commitments for a three-year period upon hire. The position will interest individuals with an interest in surgical epilepsy, neurophysiology and brain imaging, but all fields related to translational brain science in epilepsy will be considered.

The University of Florida is a land-grant institution ranked #5 among all public universities (U.S. News and World Report 2021, 2022) with annual research spending exceeding $1B. It is home to the McKnight Brain Institute and the new $100M Norman Fixel Institute for Neurological Diseases, a one-stop one-of-a-kind interdisciplinary clinical-research center that will house a multimodality translational neuroimaging suite with 3T MRI, PET, MEG and TMS all under one roof. Neuroscience research at UF is consistently ranked in the top 10 in the NIH Blueridge ratings. UF Health is largest comprehensive health science center in the Southeast USA, unique for our diverse constellation of health colleges, centers and institutes, hospitals, faculty practices and patient care programs. Epilepsy services are delivered from a free-standing 250-bedNeuromedicine Hospital inaugurated in 2017 that combines outpatient clinic, neurodiagnostics, an 8-bedded epilepsy monitoring unit, operating rooms and a 27-bed neurocritical care unit as well as a 9-bed neuro-IMC unit. Clinical strengths of the epilepsy program are in stereo-electroencephalography (SEEG) and epilepsy surgery, as well as ICU-EEG. The translational neuroimaging suite at the Fixel Institute will provide unparalleled access to brain imaging, central clinical neurophysiology and noninvasive brain stimulation for research and clinical applications. The wider UF campus possesses resources in virtually any area of science and technology, in addition to veterinary medicine, the humanities, and the pure sciences for interdisciplinary collaboration.

Gainesville is a vibrant college town that serves as the cultural, educational and commercial center for north central Florida. The town is known for its nature parks, sporting events, museums, and mild winters. There are several excellent school districts and spacious residential neighborhoods within easy driving access of campus. Florida's famed beaches are an hour away in either direction, with Disney World, and the urban hubs of Orlando, Jacksonville and Tampa a short further distance away.
