Additional Notes

We have two openings this year, one in each of two focus areas. Applicants are encouraged to apply to both if desired.

Position 1: General Pediatric Neuropsychology – One opening

Position 2: Pediatric Neuropsychology with Brain Tumor Focus– One opening

The experiences in the two positions overlap considerably; both provide broad training in pediatric neuropsychology with medical and neurodevelopmental populations and protected time for research. The Brain Tumor Focus position offers more in-depth experience with the brain tumor population, and the opportunity to work with Dr. Walsh on a brain tumor-related research project. Please see brochure for additional details about each position and the program as a whole.
