Description

The Department of Neurosciences (http://neurosciences.ucsd.edu/) at the University of California San Diego is committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body and is seeking an outstanding Neurologist/Neuroscientist for the Neuromuscular Division at UCSD/VA San Diego.

Selection will be made depending on the area of interest, aspiration, career trajectory, and capacity for team building. The environment offers exceptional opportunity for career development and candidates who are fledgling in their academic path but with great promise, energy and creativity are encouraged to apply.

The individual will work with a group of adult neuromuscular neurologists involved in clinical care, clinical research and trials, basic research and education with our growing Neuromuscular Division. The UCSD Neuromuscular Division has a clinical base at the UCSD hospitals at Hillcrest, La Jolla, and VA as well as a program at Rady Children's Hospital San Diego – the largest pediatric hospital in California. The group's current strengths are in general neuromuscular neurology, ALS, muscle diseases, and clinical neurophysiology. There is now opportunity to develop programs in nerve diseases, genetics, or immune-mediated diseases although neuromuscular generalists or neuromuscular clinicians with interests in existing areas of expertise may apply. The Neuromuscular division sponsors an ACGME accredited clinical neurophysiology fellowship, a fellowship in ALS Translational Research, and is developing an ACGME fellowship in neuromuscular diseases. There is an active rotation and conference schedule for the Neurology Residents.

Candidates must have an MD and be a neurologist-neuroscientist with Board Certification/Board Eligibility in Neurology, Neuromuscular Diseases and Clinical Neurophysiology or related field. Candidates must also have or be eligible for a California medical license or equivalent certification/permit as determined by the Medical Board of California. Candidates must have either an emerging or an established research program, and be clinically active. Candidates must also demonstrate excellent communication skills.

The appropriate series and appointment at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level will be based on the candidate's qualifications and experience.
