The Division of Neurology, in the Department of Pediatrics at Dalhousie University and the IWK Health Centre, invite applications for a full-time Pediatric Neurologist at the assistant, associate or full professor level.  The individual will join a team of 4 neurologists. The physician will primarily provide clinical service across the full spectrum of pediatric neurology.  Subspecialty interest or fellowship training would be considered an asset.

Academic qualifications include an MD (or equivalent) and board certification in Pediatric Neurology (Canadian FRCPC or eligibility).  Eligibility for medical licensure in the province of Nova Scotia is essential.
