Mount Sinai Health System seeks Academic Neuropsychologist with a focus in epilepsy.
Neuropsychologist, epilepsy division
The Department of Neurology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is seeking a full-time neuropsychologist with expertise in epilepsy, to join our faculty at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor. The candidate should be proficient in pre- and post-surgical epilepsy evaluations, inpatient neuropsychological consultation on the epilepsy monitoring unit, and outpatient assessments for neuropsychological concerns related to chronic epilepsy. Preferred candidates will have expertise in the medical and surgical management of epilepsy and experience with functional techniques prior to epilepsy surgery, such as clinical fMRI, Wada evaluations, and cortical language mapping.
The neuropsychologist will be working closely with our team of epileptologists, epilepsy neurosurgeons, radiologists, nurse practitioners, and others to provide exemplary interdisciplinary care. For patients that are pre-surgical, the candidate will present these results weekly at our multi-disciplinary case conference. The candidate will supervise and teach fellows, interns and externs within the Neuropsychology Service at the Epilepsy Center as well as neurology residents, house-staff from other departments, and medical students. In addition, the candidate will run support groups to help patients with epilepsy connect with each other and maximize their cognitive and organizational skills.
There are several ongoing research projects examining the complex relationship of cognition, mood and epilepsy in which the candidate will be expected to participate. Development of extramurally funded research by the candidate is encouraged but not required, as this is primarily a clinical position.
The Mount Sinai Epilepsy Program is state of the art and encompasses multiple inpatient and outpatient centers throughout the New York City area. We care for thousands of patients from diverse backgrounds and socioeconomic status. In addition, we perform over 100 epilepsy surgeries per year including stereotactic EEGs, laser ablations, resective surgery and implantation of the responsive neurostimulator system.
