The Brain Injury Research Center, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine invites applications for a two-year Postdoctoral Fellowship in Rehabilitation Research and Clinical Neuropsychology. The fellowship combines advanced training in rehabilitation research with clinical experience within a rehabilitation setting.

Current research protocols focus on secondary and tertiary prevention, neuropsychological and functional assessments and clinical rehabilitation interventions. A minimum of 20% of the time involves direct clinical service delivery in an outpatient setting, including neuropsychological evaluation, cognitive remediation, psychotherapy (individual or group) and functional rehabilitation interventions with individuals with brain injuries and other neurocognitive disorders.
