The department is seeking an established adult or pediatric neuropsychologist with leadership experience to become the section head for the Charles Matthews Neuropsychology Section of the Department of Neurology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. The position involves patient care, research and teaching. A significant portion of time will be devoted to research and teaching endeavors. Clinical activities will involve duties in the adult or pediatric neuropsychology clinics at UW Health Hospitals and Clinics. The candidate will join the vibrant team of research faculty and clinician scientists in the Section and the Department who are conducting cutting-edge research within a collaborative atmosphere. The Matthews Neuropsychology Section consists of 5 full time faculty, 5 psychometrists, and 2 postdoctoral fellows with anticipated growth going forward. Anticipated start date of the position is July 1, 2018. It is anticipated that the successful candidate will have a track record of external funding for their research. Significant research opportunities and collaborative teams are available in multiple areas in adult and child neurology, as well as new opportunities for research in cancer, head injury, and other areas.
The Matthews Section was established in 1962 and over the decades has seen over 40,000 adult and pediatric patients. Faculty are involved in general outpatient assessments of patients referred from physicians within the general UWHC system including the Department of Neurology, and participate in a number of specialty multidisciplinary clinics (e.g., multiple sclerosis, stroke, dementia, head injury, cancer, epilepsy). Faculty provide neuropsychological expertise in collaborative research projects with faculty in other departments (e.g., cerebral vascular disease, preclinical Alzheimer's disease, radiotherapy treatment of cancer) and the Department of Neurology and collaborate with the world class neuroimaging. Trainees include postdoctoral fellows in neuropsychology, residents (e.g., psychiatry, neurology), medical students, undergraduate and graduate students, and others. The opportunities for collaborative research are extensive and include the world class neuroimaging facilities and faculty and staff.
The School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself but, also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, we strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
