We are seeking an exceptional clinical/academic behavioral neurologist or geriatric psychiatrist to join its renowned Center for Cognitive Health (CCH), currently directed by Sam Gandy, MD, PhD, Mount Sinai Chair in Alzheimer’s Research, as an umbrella that also includes the Mount Sinai NFL Neurological Center. The incumbent will join current staff that include Dr Gandy; Julie Ciardullo, MD, Associate Director of CCH for Clinical Care; Ana Pereira, MD, PhD; Assistant Professor of Neurology, and Harry Ramos, MD, Associate Professor of Geriatrics.
The successful candidate will have expertise in dementia and related cognitive disorders, with a track record of accomplishments suitable for the academic rank of associate or full professor.
