The College of Medicine at Florida State University has embarked on a strategic effort to increase basic and translational research related to human health. In an effort to extend our impact in translational and discovery research, we are seeking two clinician-scientists at the Assistant, Associate, or full Professor ranks with proven track records of excellence in creative approaches to Biomedical Research, extramural funding, and in leading interdisciplinary groups. The mission of the College of Medicine is to prepare compassionate physicians who discover and advance knowledge and deliver the highest quality patient-centered medicine to communities with the greatest need. The Research and Discovery mission of the College of Medicine is facilitated by more than 150,000 sq. ft. of laboratory space and fully supported core labs in proteomics, genomics, advanced confocal, super-resolution and multiphoton microscopy, flow cytometry, animal care, and cell culture. Research in the Department of Biomedical Sciences covers a broad spectrum of disciplines, offering a rich, diverse, and collegial environment. The translation science core laboratory is equipped with modern mass spectrometry and deep sequencing equipment including a new state-of-the-art Illumina NovaSeq 6000. A new 3T MRI system (Siemens MAGNETOM Prisma) is housed in a new MR facility at the College of Medicine. Current research in the department is broadly focused on understanding the molecular bases of human diseases and regenerative medicine ( At FSU collaborative opportunities abound within the Department of Biomedical Sciences, in the departments of Biological Sciences, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Computational Science, Statistics, Psychology, in the Institute for Molecular Biophysics, and at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory. See for more information.
