Position Summary
The UNC Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) is seeking a full-time adult clinical neuropsychologist to join our existing Neuropsychology faculty. Currently, we have two adult neuropsychologists and one pediatric neuropsychologist, as well as a pediatric post-doctoral fellow. New faculty will provide neuropsychological evaluation, assessment, and consultation services to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with a variety of neurocognitive and neurobehavioral impairments. Clinical services are provided within UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill and in our outpatient clinics. Our neuropsychologists work closely with interdisciplinary treatment teams and other UNC departments/programs, including Neurology, Neurosurgery, Psychiatry, Oncology, Internal Medicine, Geriatrics, and Sports Medicine, as well as community providers. Typical diagnoses prompting referral include mild to moderate traumatic brain injury (TBI), stroke, autoimmune disease, neurodegenerative disorders, “chemobrain,” and other forms of acquired brain dysfunction. We also provide surgical evaluations for epilepsy, DBS, and organ transplant surgeries, and neuropsychological services to former professional football players. In-patients with acute or chronic neurocognitive impairment are evaluated to aid in patient care and discharge planning. Our Neuropsychology program provides training experiences for graduate students, psychology interns, and fellows as well as resident physicians, and clinical teaching is a valued part of our work. Faculty will also be expected to participate in administrative activities and research associated with their academic appointment and areas of expertise.

Applicants should hold a doctoral degree in clinical psychology/neuropsychology and should be licensed or license-eligible in North Carolina and board certified or eligible for board certification in clinical neuropsychology. Experience with athletic populations is preferred.
