Work where every moment matters.

Every day, over 30,000 Hartford HealthCare colleagues come to work with one thing in common: Pride in what we do, knowing every moment matters here.  We invite you to become part of Connecticut’s most comprehensive healthcare network. 

The Institute of Living, one of the first mental health centers in the U.S., remains one of America’s leading not-for-profit centers for patient care, research and education in the fields of behavioral, psychiatric and addiction disorder. Through our dedicated, experienced and skilled clinicians, we provide patients and their families with the highest quality of personalized care.

The Division of Neuropsychology enjoys active involvement in the hospital’s rich history of training and provision of excellent care. All faculty members participate in the training and development of externs, pre-doctoral interns, and post-doctoral fellows through involvement in the Institute of Living’s APA-accredited pre-doctoral internship and supervision of fellows in our APPCN-member fellowship. As such, the ideal candidate will have a keen interest and desire to participate in teaching activities and supervision of students at all levels of training.

This position is a collaboration between the Institute of Living and Hartford HealthCare’s Ayer Neuroscience Institute (specifically the programs of Movement Disorders and Neuroimmunology), and reflects our commitment to embedding behavioral health services in medical settings throughout the system.
