Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology

The Harvard Partners Consortium in Clinical Neuropsychology seeks candidates for a 2 year fellowship in Neuropsychology. The joint BWH/MGH fellowship is a program of Harvard Medical School. One fellowship slot is available.

Clinical experience will consist of adult neurological cases including dementia, epilepsy, brain tumor, developmental syndromes, neurobehavioral disorders, MS, and other degenerative conditions. At one of the sites (MGH), the fellow will receive training in both pediatric and adult cases. The clinical experience will be primarily outpatient based but will include some inpatient consultation. Specialized experience will be offered in the epilepsy surgery program including Wada Tests and intraoperative cortical mapping.

A required portion of the fellowship will be research activity through a proposed project or via participation with faculty in ongoing research projects. Didactic opportunities abound at both settings. The training experience is enriched by a highly collaborative teaching environment in which the fellow will work closely with neuropsychologists, behavioral neurologists, psychiatrists, and others with a special interest in brain and behavior. There are opportunities to supervise graduate practicum students.

A competitive stipend plus excellent benefits are offered. An academic appointment will be made as a Clinical Fellow at Harvard Medical School. Applicants should be graduates of APA/CPA accredited programs in clinical psychology or neuropsychology and should have completed an APA/CPA‐approved predoctoral internship. Completion of the doctoral degree is required before the fellowship start date.
