Career Positions at UF

Assistant/Associate Professor in Addiction Science -519357

The Department of Psychiatry at the University of Florida (UF), College of Medicine in Gainesville, Florida is seeking an Assistant or Associate Professor in Clinical Addiction Science. The position is a 12-month, full-time (1.0 FTE), non-tenured or tenured track faculty position, based on history of and/or potential for NIH or equivalent external funding. The position is expected to address research and teaching needs. Clinical duties are not expected to be a component of the position.

The department is seeking a dynamic individual with demonstrated potential for cutting-edge clinical research and a strong publication record in the area of addiction science. The applicant should possess experience in clinical addiction science and specific skills in the study of lifespan trajectories, psychiatric and medical comorbidities, and/or the application of large data sets to inform science, practice, and policy. The successful candidate must be able to work effectively with multi-disciplinary teams and diverse populations. Addiction faculty in the department are engaged in UF and national collaborations that afford rich opportunities for career development. As a faculty member in the College of Medicine, the candidate will also contribute to its education mission by participating in graduate and/or medical education. Finally, the successful candidate must be willing to engage in service at the level of the department, college, and larger profession and demonstrate a strong commitment to issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Neuroscience Research opportunities at the University of North Texas Health Science Center
Apply at: Dr. Luis Colon-Perez (

Interested in finding the secrets of the brain! The Colon-Perez lab will be opening its doors in January 2022 at the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth, TX. We will be looking to hire motivated neuroscientists and interdisciplinary scientists at all levels (lab techs, graduate students, postdocs, and undergraduate volunteers). We specialize in employing the latest MRI neuroimaging techniques to find out how the brain works and how it is structured in rodents and humans. The lab incorporates computational neuroscience methods, such as connectomics to broad applications in neuropsychiatric disorders. A major theme in the lab is integrating behavioral neuroscience with MRI neuroimaging techniques to identify prospective biomarkers of substance use disorders. Specifically, we seek to elucidate physical properties of “connectomes” and their temporal relationships to changes in behavior. To accomplish this, we merge MRI with complex network analysis and graph theory to reveal topological features of brain connectivity. We use diffusion MRI to determine the brain connectivity in vivo using tractography and fMRI to determine the functional features of the brain. Using complex network analysis, we can assess topological descriptions of connectomes to quantitatively determine properties that can be linked back to behavior. The lab currently is funded by NIH-NIDA, BBRF, and UNTHSC grants.

To apply to any position or learn about the opportunities, please send a cover letter and CV detailing your research experience directly to the PI, Dr. Luis Colon-Perez (
