University of California, at Davis (UCD), Sacramento, CA, USA - 1 neuropsychology fellowship

The Department of Neurology at the University of California, at Davis (UCD), located in Sacramento, CA will have an opening beginning in Aug./Sept. 2012 for a full time neuropsychology fellow. Fellows will participate in clinical, didactic and research activities. Clinical work focuses on conducting both comprehensive as well as more brief neuropsychological assessments. More limited opportunities for treatment are also available. Fellows will have a chance to assess adults with a wide variety of neurological disorders including: various dementias (i.e. AD, FTD, Primary Progressive Aphasia syndromes), epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, CNS tumors, stroke, MS, TBI, etc. Participation in Wada testing and intra-operative and extra-operative cortical brain mapping is also available. We offer an extensive didactic series, as well as numerous other training opportunities typical of a large university medical center (e.g. brain cutting, a neuroscience lecture series, etc.). The position is primarily clinical but there are numerous opportunities to become involved in existing research projects or to use existing databases to design a retrospective study. This is a two-year position with an annual salary of approximately $37,700 plus benefits (or most current NIH postdoctoral salary schedule). Application materials should include a letter of interest, CV, graduate school transcripts, three letters of recommendation, and two de-identified sample reports.
