The Department of Neurosciences (http://neurosciences.ucsd.edu/) at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) is committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body and is seeking outstanding clinical Pediatric Neurologists/Epileptologists.
The Division of Pediatric Neurology at the Rady Children's Hospital (https://www.rchsd.org/) is an integral part of the UCSD Department of Neurosciences and, as such, fully participates in the exciting new developments within the Department and the distinguished Neurosciences community at UC San Diego. The Division provides comprehensive neurological clinical care to the children of San Diego County and beyond. At present, the Division is comprised of two dozen child neurologists, 10 pediatric neurology residents, several clinical fellows, and an extensive team of other trainees and allied health professionals. Excellence in clinical care, education and research spans all subspecialty areas of pediatric neurology, including but not limited to epilepsy, neurodevelopmental disorders, brain cancer, stroke, brain injury, headache, neonatal neurology, movement disorders, demyelinating disorders, neurogenetics, and neuromuscular disorders. The comprehensive epilepsy program at Rady Children's Hospital is fully accredited by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (at the highest level of distinction – Level IV).
The successful candidates will join an existing group of pediatric epileptologists who participate in all aspects of pediatric epilepsy care – including, but not limited to, epilepsy surgery, clinical drug trials, vagus nerve stimulation, transcranial magnetic stimulation, epilepsy genetics, and the ketogenic diet. The selected candidates will be responsible for providing high quality training and teaching and will participate in the clinical care of patients and research.
The appropriate series and appointment at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level will be based on the candidate’s background and experience.
