Responsibilities

SUMMARY - The BNI staff neuropsychologist provides neuropsychological assessment and treatment services within the scope of their licensing, training, and clinical privileges, and supervises and teaches residents and/or fellows as indicated. Staff neuropsychologists with dedicated research time demonstrate productivity in research through publications and grant funding.

 

Barrow Neurological Institute (BNI), Phoenix, Arizona, consistently ranked in the Top 15 institutions for neurology and neurosurgery by US News, has an opening for a mid-career or senior neuropsychologist. The selected individual will primarily conduct outpatient neuropsychological evaluations of a variety of individuals with known or suspected brain disorders. We care especially interested in cadidiates with demonstrated experience and research record within either neurooncology, epilepsy (including NES and epilepsy surgery) and/or functional neuroimaging as applied clinically in a neurosurgical setting (especially operative planning).


Faculty members in the Neuropsychology department and the Center for Transitional NeuroRehabilitation participate in training neuropsychology residents (BNI currently takes 2-3 fellows per year in an APPCN-approved program). The neuropsychology program has grown to include two rehabilitation psychologists.


The BNI is home to the world-renowned Muhammad Ali movement disorders center, the Ivy Brain Tumor Center, an endowed ALS center, and a large Alzheimer’s center. There is a busy EMU/epilepsy surgery program. MEG and neuroimaging research opportunities are available and many clinical trials are ongoing. Neurosurgery (home also to the Center for Neuromodulation) is one of the largest departments in the country, drawing patients from all over the world.  The institution offers a highly competitive salary and excellent fringe benefits. Phoenix enjoys wonderful recreation, sports and arts opportunities, a relatively low cost of living for a major city, and given its climate, is a major tourist destination.
