The University of Florida is currently recruiting an established researcher at the Professor or Associate Professor level to fill a newly created faculty position at the College of Veterinary Medicine in a specialty area of regenerative medicine.  Applicants must hold a PhD, DVM, MD, or equivalent degree, and have significant post-doctoral research experience. The successful candidate will be expected to be an accomplished researcher with an established, independent and externally-funded research program in a subfield of regenerative medicine and an interest in translational research using animal models, related, but not restricted to, stem cell therapies, neural/organ regeneration, tissue engineering, and molecular biology therapies.  The College of Veterinary Medicine faculty have strong current collaborations with the UF Colleges of Medicine, Public Health and Health Professions, Engineering, Dentistry, and other UF colleges, in the areas of neural regeneration, respiratory/visceral physiology, dermatology, cardiology, ophthalmology, oncology, toxicology, mucosal immunology, etc., with those collaborative efforts funded by numerous federal grants (NIH, NSF, DoD, etc.).  In addition, there are opportunities to collaborate with other scientists and clinicians in sports medicine, biomedical engineering, orthopedic surgery, arthritis, neuro-muscular diseases, cancer and/or aging. 

This recruitment is part of a growing commitment by the University of Florida to investigate and provide solutions to health challenges that involve humans, animals, and their environments in dynamic local, national, and international settings. The successful candidate will have a faculty appointment likely in the Department of Physiological Sciences, housed within the UF Health Center, and have the opportunity to participate in teaching and mentoring activities in the department, college, health center, and university PhD, MS, DVM, MD, DDS, MPH degree programs, and other certificate graduate education programs.  Applicants with significant transferable Federal funding will be given preference, and a track record of applied research will strengthen a candidate’s application. This position will offer outstanding scholarly and scientific opportunities in a collegial environment with well-established programs supported by state-of-the-art core facilities. The city of Gainesville has excellent recreational opportunities, a reasonable cost of living, and a pleasant climate. Rank and salary will be determined based upon qualifications and experience.
