Cleveland Clinic’s Neurological Institute announces a search for a clinical neuropsychologist (adult or lifespan focus) with specialization in the evaluation of patients with epilepsy to join our dynamic and growing Neuropsychology section. The successful candidate will join the staff of the Neuropsychology Section at the Cleveland Clinic, which currently consists of 14 neuropsychologists, 2 postdoctoral residents, practicum students, and 13 psychometrists.

This position will be supported by the Cleveland Clinic Epilepsy Center, one of the largest epilepsy surgery centers in the country. The successful candidate will work in close collaboration with our multidisciplinary epilepsy team that includes 21 epileptologists and 3 neurosurgeons. The neuropsychologist in this position will have the primary responsibility for clinical assessment of patients with seizure disorders, most of whom are undergoing comprehensive evaluation for epilepsy surgery. The clinical practice model is based on neuropsychologist interview and interpretation, supported by psychometrist-administered testing. Opportunities to evaluate patients through the general neuropsychology service may also be available. Assessment results for surgical candidates are presented by the staff neuropsychologist at a weekly, multidisciplinary patient management conference.

There is a strong educational component to the position. The successful applicant will play a role in the supervision of postdoctoral neuropsychology fellows in our APPCN-member program and epilepsy fellows who complete a neuropsychology rotation as part of their clinical training. Other teaching opportunities include supervision of practicum students and teaching of medical students, residents, and fellows in many disciplines, including neurology and neurophysiology. The successful applicant will be eligible for appointment to the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine at a level commensurate with experience. In addition to clinical and educational roles, collaborative research activities may be developed based on applicant interest. 

Applicants must have completed a doctoral degree from an APA- or CPA-accredited psychology program, an internship with experience in neuropsychology and a postdoctoral fellowship with specialization in neuropsychology. Eligibility for licensure in Ohio is essential. Eligibility for or certification by the American Board of Professional Psychology in Clinical Neuropsychology is strongly preferred. 

As the largest employer in Northeast Ohio, with over 77,000 caregivers worldwide, the Cleveland Clinic is able to offer outstanding benefits and support for professional development.
