Pediatric Neuropsychologist

Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA) is pleased to announce an opening for a full-time faculty pediatric neuropsychologist to join our award-winning Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry within the Department Psychiatry. CHA is a community-based distributed health system that includes the Cambridge, Everett, and Somerville Hospitals. The child and adolescent division provides outpatient care to youth and families in two outpatient clinics, three high school-based clinics, and via integrated care consultation in 11 primary care clinics. CHA is a primary teaching site for Harvard Medical School (HMS). Our system serves a culturally and ethnically diverse population; more than half of our patients (56%) identify as non-white and one quarter (25%) speak a primary language other than English. Our outpatient services include sub-specialty care in the assessment and treatment of both neurodevelopmental disorders and early psychosis.

Our child and adolescent psychiatry division serves children and adolescents with complex psychiatric and developmental conditions. Experience with assessing cognitive and socio-emotional functioning associated with severe mental illness (particularly complex trauma, psychosis, and clinical high risk), neurodevelopment, and neurological/medical complications from early childhood to early adulthood in culturally diverse community health settings is preferred. Skills in cognitive remediation are also preferred. In our culturally diverse community health setting, we value experience and skills in providing multilingual and culturally-sensitive neuropsychological services. 

Duties include completing neuropsychological assessments, patient and family education, consultation with colleagues in other medical, neurological and mental health specialties. The role will also include occasional consultation to our inpatient service, which includes a neurodevelopmental unit, child unit, and adolescent unit. 

In addition, our division combines advanced clinical care with academic engagement. The psychology division has a robust and vibrant training program that includes psychology practicum students, interns and postdoctoral fellows. The position includes teaching and supervising psychology interns and postdoctoral fellows and the faculty member holds an appointment at Harvard Medical School. We are seeking both early-career and mid-career applicants to provide a supportive and vibrant team experience. 

Applicants must hold a doctoral degree in clinical or counseling psychology from an APA/CPA accredited program, have completed an APA/CPA accredited pre-doctoral internship and postdoctoral residency in Neuropsychology, and must be licensed in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts upon starting the position. The position offers a competitive salary and benefits.
