Job Description

The Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine seeks a full-time Neuropsychologist at the rank of Instructor or Assistant Professor on the non-tenure track.

Northwestern Memorial Hospital (NMH) is an 894-bed academic medical center hospital that is the primary teaching affiliate for the Feinberg School of Medicine and has nearly 1,900 affiliated physicians representing virtually every medical specialty. Northwestern Memorial Hospital ranks among the top hospitals in the nation and is recognized for providing exemplary patient care and innovative advancements in a variety of clinical areas including cardiovascular care; oncology; neurology and neurosurgery; geriatrics; solid organ and soft tissue transplants; orthopaedics; and women’s health at its Prentice Women’s Hospital.

This position is critical to the collaborations between psychiatry and other specialties (e.g., Neurology, Neurosurgery, Transplant, Oncology, and General Internal Medicine) in the clinical diagnosis and treatment of patients with known or suspected neurocognitive impairment due to medical, psychiatric, and neurodevelopmental conditions. Responsibilities include performing neuropsychological evaluations (in outpatient and inpatient/intraoperative settings) of adult patients referred from a variety of sources across the medical center. While this is predominantly a clinical position, opportunities to contribute to education and clinical training activities within the department, including the doctoral program in clinical psychology and post-doctoral neuropsychology fellowship programs, are available.

Qualified candidates will have their PhD in clinical psychology/clinical neuropsychology, completed an APA approved clinical internship with a neuropsychology emphasis, have at least two years of supervised postdoctoral training in clinical neuropsychology, and will be licensed or licensed eligible in the State of Illinois. Salary is commensurate with experience.

The start date is negotiable, and the position will remain open until filled. When applying, please upload a CV and cover letter describing your interest and alignment with the position. Also upload this completed list of references form to suggest the names of individuals who could write letters of reference on your behalf.
