The Department of Pediatrics-Patient Care at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is seeking a full time clinical faculty position for a Pediatric Neuropsychologist within the Section of Behavioral Pediatrics. This is a new position to add to our growing team!
Eligible candidates must have completed a doctoral degree in psychology from an APA/CPA- approved program, internship from an APA/CPA-approved site, and a postdoctoral fellowship in clinical neuropsychology that aligns with Houston Conference guidelines on Specialty Education and Training in Clinical Neuropsychology. Specialty board certification in Clinical Neuropsychology through ABPP is preferred, though applicants who are eligible for board certification will be considered. ABPP board certification is expected within 3 years of appointment. Applicants must be licensed or license-eligible in Texas. Spanish-language proficiency is a plus.
Clinical populations served include all types of cancers from initial diagnosis through long-term survivorship, as well as a large NF1 patient population. Expertise with pediatric oncology populations is desired, though qualified candidates with experience with medically complex children, adolescents, and young adults are encouraged to apply. Applicants should have an established academic record and qualify for a clinical faculty academic appointment (rank commensurate with qualifications). The Division of Pediatrics consists of highly collaborative clinicians and researchers with many opportunities for innovative independent and collaborative scholarship.
