Academic rank and track is dependent on applicant qualifications. The applicant must be BC/BE in Neurology and Vascular Neurology.

The University of Utah Comprehensive Stroke Center consists of a dynamic and experienced multi-disciplinary clinical team. We have a robust telestroke program and serve a wide geographic area.

To support our growth, we are seeking a clinician-scientist with strong training in research methodology and independent research goals. Young investigators are encouraged to apply. We are also seeking stroke clinicians interested in participating in an expanding teleneurology program. Outstanding opportunities to collaborate with neurogenetics, neuroimaging, neurorehabilitation, telemedicine, emergency medicine, population health, cardiology, and trials.

Primary clinical responsibilities will include ~1:6 stroke call (including telestroke call) and inpatient stroke consults with negotiable outpatient, hospitalist, and teleneurology duties. Mentorship of ACGME stroke fellows is expected as is participation in stroke center quality improvement.
