Neuromuscular Neurologist (Two Positions)

We are no longer accepting applications for this recruitment


The Department of Neurology, University of California Davis, School of Medicine, is recruiting two neurologists with training and expertise in neuromuscular disorders and electromyography (EMG) for a full-time position in the either the Health Sciences Clinical Professor (HSCP) series or Clinical X series. The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary academic Neurology practice in the beautiful Sacramento region of Northern California.

The UC Davis Department of Neurology and UC Davis Health System teaching hospital are nationally ranked in US News & World Report. The UC Davis clinical electrophysiology lab recently relocated to a new state-of-the art outpatient facility specifically designed and integrated into an outpatient Neurosciences Clinic in the heart of midtown Sacramento. The laboratory is accredited by the American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM) by maintaining the highest level of quality, performance and integrity. The lab accommodates EMG and EEG studies during clinic hours and Sleep studies during the night and weekends.

The successful candidate must possess an MD/DO degree and possess a valid California Medical license or be eligible for licensure in the State of California. Applicants should have completed post-Neurology residency training in EMG/neuromuscular disorders and be board-certified/eligible in Neurology with added clinical qualification in Neurophysiology and Electrodiagnostic medicine (ABEM). The ability to work cooperatively and collegially within a diverse environment is required.

For the Clinical X series, the ability and experience to conduct scholarly/clinical/translational research and a record of publications in peer reviewed journals is required.

Experience teaching medical students, residents and fellows is preferred. Interest or experience in clinical or translational research is desirable but not required. Evidence of success in obtaining extramural funding and/or administering clinical trials is desirable.

This faculty position requires a primary interest in clinical practice and the teaching of medical students, residents, and fellows. In both the HSCP and Clinical X series, the faculty member will provide inpatient and outpatient clinical care; teach medical students, residents and fellows; and provide university/public service. The ability to work cooperatively and collegially within a diverse environment is required.

The academic rank and track of the position is commensurate with the level of experience and qualifications of the selected candidates.

To receive full consideration, applications must be received by October 29, 2017. However, the position will be open until June 30, 2018.

Interested applicants should submit: 1) cover letter with a summary of objectives and goals; 2) curriculum vita; 3) names of three references including addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses, and; 4) Statement of Contributions to Diversity. All materials must be submitted using the following application link:

UC Davis implemented a family-friendly recruitment practice to make it easier for recruited candidates who are parents of very young children to participate in on-campus interviews for faculty positions. This practice allows the reimbursement of travel and hotel expenses for a second person to accompany the prospective faculty mother (or single parent of either gender) of a breast- or bottle-feeding child under the age of two.

UC Davis recognizes the necessity of supporting faculty in honoring their often-competing commitments to both family and career. To recruit and retain the best faculty, the campus established a Work Life program:
