The Glenn Biggs Institute for Alzheimer’s & Neurodegenerative Diseases (Biggs Institute) in the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine at UT Health San Antonio (UTHSA) is seeking Neurologists with subspecialty training in Cognitive and Behavioral Neurology for a tenure-track position at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor level. Our goal is to identify an individual who is passionate about clinical care and research.

The Biggs Institute was founded to transform dementia care in South Texas by providing comprehensive patient care and research opportunities. As such, patient appointments are allocated to have more time per visit. Clinic support staff includes social work, counseling, and nursing outreach. Clinics for complex cases include evaluation by Behavioral Neurology, Neuropsychology, Geriatric Psychiatry, and Geriatrics. Regarding research opportunities, research time will be protected. Candidates with experience conducting clinical trials will be preferred. Candidates with 3-4 years of experience delivering superb clinical care and involvement in clinical trials research as a PI or Co-PI could qualify for an Endowed Chair position.

The Biggs Institute is led by Dr. Sudha Seshadri, an internationally-renowned Neurologist and Senior Investigator who leads the studies on cognition for the Framingham Heart Study. There is strong support for Biggs faculty to develop an independent or mentored research program. We also have a team-based approach to the delivery of superb clinical care, assisted by philanthropic and research funding to permit care approaches that are not well reimbursed.

The Biggs Institute has substantial institutional and community support, as well as philanthropic and NIH funding. The patient population is diverse and the atmosphere is friendly and collaborative.  Clinic space is state-of-the-art. There are ample opportunities to work with medical students and residents. There is a comprehensive UT benefits package including relocation assistance. Salary would be competitive and would correspond to level of experience, publications and research funding. The Biggs Institute is a rapidly growing Institute that aims to achieve national prominence as an Alzheimer research center and will afford numerous opportunities for career advancement.

In addition to being a fantastic professional opportunity, this position allows you to live and work in one of the largest and most diverse cities in the country. You’ll enjoy a vibrant downtown area where modern skyscrapers intermingle with historic sites and live entertainment is available all year. A favorable winter climate allows you to take advantage of the scenic Texas Hill Country, gorgeous lakes, and golf-courses year-round. These advantages are accompanied by a strong economy, excellent public, and private school options, professional sporting events, no state income tax, and a low cost of living.
