The Department of Neurology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for an assistant professor position in the non-tenure clinician educator track. Expertise is required in the specific area of neurology with a focus on Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. Experience with clinical trials and an interest in clinical research is emphasized.

Teaching responsibilities may include teaching medical students, residents, fellows and trainees at all levels, both in research and clinical neurology.

Clinical responsibilities may include further development of the Penn Memory Center/Alzheimer’s Disease Center’s robust NIH- and industry-supported clinical trial program.

Research or scholarship responsibilities may include participation in research and clinical evaluation of patients with cognitive/behavioral symptoms secondary to neurodegenerative conditions. Start-up support is available as appropriate for development of the research program that integrates with the existing infrastructure of a highly active translational research center.

The university seeks candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense.

The University of Pennsylvania is an EOE. Minorities/women/individuals with disabilities/protected veterans are encouraged to apply.


Applicants must have an M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. or equivalent degree. Candidates should be board-certified or board-eligible in neurology and have additional training in cognitive/behavioral neurology.
