Bilingual Clinical Neuropsychologist Position

(academic appointment rank open)

 

Barrow Neurological Institute (BNI), Phoenix, Arizona, has an opening for one or two Bilingual (English/Spanish) Clinical Neuropsychologists.  The selected individual will primarily conduct outpatient neuropsychological evaluations (including of monolingual Spanish or bilingual English/Spanish) individuals with known or suspected brain disorders. 

 

Faculty members in the Neuropsychology department and the Center for Transitional Neuro-Rehabilitation participate in training neuropsychology residents (BNI currently takes 2-3 neuropsychology fellows per year in an APPCN-approved and APA accredited program and one rehabilitation psychology resident). If not already board-certified in neuropsychology, the individual will be expected to be ABPP-certified within three years of employment. 

 

The BNI is home to the renowned Muhammad Ali Movement Disorders Center, an endowed ALS center, a large Alzheimer’s center, and Centers of Excellence in Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease and Lewy body dementia. The institute offers a large number of clinical trials in neurology and neurosurgery. There is a busy EMU/epilepsy surgery program. MEG and neuroimaging research opportunities are available. Neurosurgery (home also to the Center for Neuromodulation) is one of the largest departments in the country, drawing patients from all over the world. The neuropsychology department has grown to include also rehabilitation psychologists, and has a large clinic space that will be even further enlarged with department growth in 2024.

 

The institution offers a highly competitive salary and excellent fringe benefits.  Phoenix enjoys wonderful recreation, sports and arts opportunities, a relatively low cost of living for a major city, and given its climate, is a major tourist destination.

 

Qualifications:

·        Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology/Neuropsychology and internship (APA-accredited) and fellowship in clinical neuropsychology

·        Licensed/licensable as a psychologist in Arizona

·        Must be US citizen or permanent resident by the time of application
