University of California San Diego
The Department of Neurosciences (http://neurosciences.ucsd.edu/) at the University of California San Diego is committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body and is seeking an outstanding Neurologist/Neuroscientist for the Neuromuscular Division at UCSD/VA San Diego.
Selection will be made depending on the area of interest, aspiration, career trajectory, and capacity for team building.

The group's current strengths are in general neuromuscular neurology, ALS, muscle diseases, and clinical neurophysiology. There is now opportunity to develop programs in nerve diseases, genetics, or immune-mediated diseases although neuromuscular generalists or neuromuscular clinicians with interests in existing areas of expertise may apply. The Neuromuscular division sponsors an ACGME accredited clinical neurophysiology fellowship, a fellowship in ALS Translational Research, and is developing an ACGME fellowship in neuromuscular diseases. There is an active rotation and conference schedule for the Neurology Residents.
Candidates must have an MD and be a neurologist-neuroscientist with Board Certification/Board Eligibility in Neurology, Neuromuscular Diseases and Clinical Neurophysiology or related field.
