The Dell Medical School seeks an inaugural Director for the newly endowed Mulva Clinic for the Neurosciences (MCN). The Mulva family's generous investment is to establish a world-class enterprise that will be a leader in the diagnosis, treatment, and research of neurological and psychiatric disorders. To achieve this goal, we are seeking an internationally renowned physician in the neurosciences to serve as Director.

Dell Medical School is taking advantage of its position as a new medical school to reconsider the appropriate role of academic medicine in healthcare. In its initiatives, it identifies significant gaps in community health outcomes using clinical evidence and implements well-designed services to close those gaps cost effectively. The school is committed to redesigning services that improve outcomes that matter most to patients, by educating leaders, developing new models of care, and advancing innovation from health products to healthcare delivery.

Dell Medical School is also taking advantage of being the only medical school in the University of Texas system to be established on a University of Texas academic campus, with outstanding faculty in life sciences, physical sciences, social sciences, business, and engineering. There are ample opportunities for developing partnerships with established investigators currently on the UT Austin campus by providing avenues for translation of discoveries in neuroscience and engineering to clinical practice.

Therefore, the Mulva Clinic directorship represents an exciting opportunity to design and build a new fully integrated, patient-focused model that translates the latest discoveries from cutting-edge research in the clinical neurosciences to improvements in health.

The University of Texas at Austin values diversity and is committed to equal opportunity for all persons regardless of age, color, disability, ethnicity, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, veteran status, or any other status protected by law. This position is security sensitive; conviction verification will be conducted on applicant selected.
