New Position to Begin 2022


The University of Utah, Department of Neurology, Division of Vascular Neurology, seeks to hire three vascular neurologists in both clinician-investigator and clinician-educator tracks. Junior, mid-career, and senior neurologists are encouraged to apply as are persons needing a J-1 visa waiver. Academic rank and track is dependent on applicant qualifications. The applicant must be BC/BE in Neurology and Vascular Neurology.

The Division of Vascular Neurology currently includes nine stroke neurologists with expertise in telehealth, systems of care, neuroimaging, neuro-rehab, neuro-education, and clinical trials. We are a dynamic group of neurologists who love patient care and serve in numerous Department and University leadership positions, including 3 Vice Chair roles. We are excellent at mentoring junior faculty but also would welcome a mid-career neurologist looking to join a great Department in the beautiful Intermountain West. We are a Regional Coordinating Center for NIH StrokeNet, managing stroke trials not only at the University of Utah but also in 3 surrounding states. In addition, the Department is a NeuroNEXT site, and the University hosts a CTSA .

As a Division, we support and lead the University of Utah Comprehensive Stroke Center which includes an experienced multi-disciplinary clinical team consisting of nurses, vascular neurosurgeons, vascular neuroradiology, neurorthid, emergency medicine, and neurocritical care. Due to tight focus on quality, we routinely achieve national AHA / ASA awards for our inpatient stroke care. We have a robust telestroke program and serve nearly 30 hospitals in 6 states, including some sites with AI capabilities for LVO detection and on-site neuroIR partnerships. All division members support our outpatient practice, which is known for specialty expertise in PFO , CADASIL , CCM , intracranial atherosclerosis, and cryptogenic stroke, and receives referrals from multiple hospital systems in multiple states. Our faculty also conduct clinics to multiple underserved populations, including the homeless, the incarcerated, and rural patients via in-person and telemedicine-based outreach clinics in rural / frontier locations.

To support our growth as a Division, we are seeking a clinician-scientist with strong training in research methodology and independent research goals. Young investigators needing mentorship are encouraged to apply. We are also seeking stroke clinicians with TCD training / expertise and interest in participating in our expanding Teleneurology program. Primary clinical responsibilities will include “brain attack” and telestroke call and inpatient vascular ward service with negotiable outpatient and Teleneurology duties. Shared effort as a Neurovascular specialist at the nearby and academically partnered Salt Lake City Veteran’s Administration Health Center is a possibility. Mentorship of ACGME stroke fellows is expected as is participation in stroke center quality improvement.
