The Department of Neurological Sciences at the Robert Larner, M.D. College of
Medicine (LCOM) at the University of Vermont (UVM) and the University of
Vermont Medical Center (UVMMC) are seeking to recruit a fellowship-trained
neuromuscular neurologist and clinical researcher. The department's
neuromuscular division includes nationally recognized ALS, MDA, myasthenia
gravis, and inflammatory neuropathy clinics. Our growing neuromuscular
division seeks to expand expertise in clinical neuromuscular medicine,
electrodiagnostic medicine, neuromuscular education, and clinical and
translational research neuroscience.
Our goal is to add to the high level of clinical care, clinical research, and
education the unit currently provides. Candidates with clinical and research
expertise in ALS will complement our group well. However, candidates with
expertise in all aspects of neuromuscular medicine will be considered. The
neuromuscular division is active in clinical and translational research.
Clinical trials training and expertise or translational neuroscience
laboratory investigative work will be considered and should be noted.
Dedicated time and support for research can be negotiated for promising
candidates. Our program values graduate and undergraduate medical education.
Our group regularly receives outstanding ratings from neurology residents,
neuromuscular fellows, clinical neurophysiology fellows and medical students
who train with our faculty. Incoming faculty members will have the opportunity
to add their expertise to our strong clinical education programs.
This full-time position is associated with a faculty appointment in the
Department of Neurological Sciences at the rank of Assistant Professor,
Associate Professor, or Professor based on previous experience and academic
rank. Mentorship will be provided for junior faculty candidates.
