The University of Maryland School of Medicine
The University of Maryland School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, Division of Pediatric Neurology, is seeking two Assistant or Associate Professor level candidates to join our expanding Program. In addition to clinical skills and board eligibility or certification in Child Neurology, competitive candidates should have an interest in academic and/or research pursuits. Subspecialty expertise within the Division includes Neuro-Oncology and a renowned Children’s Headache Program. The University of Maryland Children’s Hospital has the only pediatric-dedicated continuous Epilepsy Monitoring Unit in Maryland, and identifying suitable candidates with additional training in Epilepsy is a major focus of this recruitment effort. We have recently expanded our critical care, cardiac, and neonatology services. Opportunities exist for growth within the areas of neonatal neurology, stroke, and neuromuscular disorders. An NIH funded program project grant on interventions for neonatal hypoxia-ischemia with or without inflammation is opening new opportunities for translational and/or preclinical research. Our Division of Behavioral and Developmental Pediatrics is also expanding, which will offer additional opportunities for collaboration.
The working environment for a Pediatric Neurologist at our institution is superb. The position offers opportunities for research partnerships with our colleagues in the Department of Neurology, which has a widely recognized program in Movement Disorders. Additional areas of excellence include the Neuromuscular, Stroke and Epilepsy Programs. There are opportunities to collaborate with experts in neuro-radiology, the Shock-Trauma Center and our Center for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine. The position also offers exciting opportunities to work with faculty of the Neuroscience Graduate Program located on the Medical Campus, ideal for faculty who pursue clinical and/or basic science research.
