INSTRUCTOR/ASSISTANT/ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF NEUROLOGY
Center for Neurotechnology and Neurorecovery
Massachusetts General Hospital
Harvard Medical School

The Department of Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital is recruiting new faculty with expertise in innovation in neuroengineering and neuroscience. The successful candidate should have a record of research achievements in neuroengineering/neurotechnology, such as assistive technologies, neurorehabilitation/neurorobotics, implanted recording and/or neuromodulation devices, vascular and interventional or surgical neurotechnologies, neural encoding/decoding techniques, or high resolution neurophysiology and neuroplasticity. The candidate’s research program should enable the early translation of engineering innovations into clinical research or practice.

The primary appointment will be in the MGH Department of Neurology within its Center for Neurotechnology and Neurorecovery. The position is open at the HMS Instructor/Assistant/Associate Professor rank. Candidates must hold a PhD or MD/PhD in engineering or related disciplines and demonstrate potential for outstanding research. Some postdoctoral research training is preferred, as is a record of external funding. All candidates should submit a CV with a cover letter. The letter should discuss the candidate’s research plans and laboratory requirements. MD/PhD applicants should highlight their preferred balance of clinical responsibility and research effort.

Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis, and should be submitted as soon as possible, no later than January 10, 2018. Interested candidates should send their CV and letter to:
Merit Cudkowicz, MD, MSc
Chief, Neurology Service
Julieanne Dorn Professor of Neurology
MGHNeurologySearch@partners.org

Questions about this opportunity can be addressed to Dr. Leigh Hochberg and/or Dr. Sydney Cash at the above email address.

Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School are Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employers actively committed to increasing the diversity of their faculty; people with disabilities, Veterans, women and members of underrepresented minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply.

Announcing the new

PARTNERS NEURORECOVERY FELLOWSHIP

On behalf of both the Center for Neurotechnology and Neurorecovery in the MGH Department of Neurology, and the SRH Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, we are pleased to announce the July 2017 launch of the Partners Neurorecovery Fellowship.

The Partners Neurorecovery Fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital offers a one-year clinical training program in neurorecovery and neurorehabilitation. The fellowship provides clinical training in the management and rehabilitative treatment of people recovering from acute neurological injuries (e.g., stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, status epilepticus). We also provide substantial opportunity for trainees to participate in research to advance the science of neurorecovery and neural repair. Our overarching goal is to train physicians to be both outstanding clinicians and transformational researchers in neurorecovery.

Fellows will have a broad clinical experience, spanning the acute to post-acute  neurologic continuum of care. Fellows will perform inpatient neurorehabilitation consultations at MGH, Spaulding, and other affiliated institutions. They will also provide longitudinal ambulatory care for patients recovering from neurologic injury in the MGH Neurorecovery and Spaulding neurorehabilitation clinics. There are additional clinical electives available for fellows in the MGH Neurosciences Intensive Care Unit and the MGH Clinical Neurophysiology Units.

A core aim of the Neurorecovery Fellowship is to provide exposure to and dedicated time for basic, clinical, and translational research in neural repair and neurorecovery. To this end, the fellowship provides substantial protected time for a longitudinal research project over the course of the fellowship year with the goal of generating preliminary data for a transition to independence award (NIH K award or equivalent). Leigh R. Hochberg, MD, PhD is the fellowship director and Nicole Mazwi, MD, is the fellowship co-director.

We look forward to welcoming the future of neurorecovery with our new trainees! For more information, please contact Mia Falco (mfalco@partners.org).

Also of interest: Please see the Spaulding-administered fellowships in Brain Injury (directed by Dr. Seth Herman, sdherman@partners.org) and Spinal Cord Injury (directed by Dr. Sunil Sabharwal, Sunil.Sabharwal@med.va.gov).
