·       A community of highly skilled and experienced clinical and neuropsychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, coaches, and psychiatric nurses. It is easy to refer in-house for testing, pharmacotherapy, coaching and collaborative psychotherapy services.

·       An elegant and well-appointed office–that is compliant with ADA standards–and which includes a coffee and snack bar and staff kitchen.

·       Free surface parking as well as access to a gym.

·       The flexibility to provide a portion of clinical work and supervision through telehealth.

·       Once a month CE events for ten months of the year, with lunch provided.

·       Once a month case conferences for ten months of the year,  with lunch provided.

This position involves a combination of providing neuropsychological assessment, supervising post-docs in our post-doctoral training program in neuropsychology that is a member of APPCN, as well as providing didactic training to our post-doctoral trainees on a rotating basis with the other neuropsychologists on staff.

• Has significant experience supervising trainees in neuropsychological assessments within structured programs at the internship or post-doctoral level.

• Can demonstrate a commitment to evidence-based neuropsychological testing and staying up to date with the scientific literature.

• Has experience working with a multi-cultural client base and who can demonstrate being a lifelong learner of the clinical, professional and person matters that are affiliated with multiculturalism.

• Is mission-driven rather than job-obligated; someone who is passionate about neuropsychology and training.

• Who stays up to date on chart notes, report delivery and other administrative commitments to clients, trainees and colleagues.

• Who can make a substantive contribution to a pre-existing culture of collaboration, respect, and good cheer.

• Who can demonstrate a commitment to advancing their professional standing.
