The behavioral and neuroscience community at FSU is broad and located in multiple Colleges with extensive research interactions. The Mina Jo Powell Chair is expected to build upon existing strengths in mood disorders, EEG and neuroimaging, neurobiology of sex differences in anxiety and depression, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, sex differences in development and behavior, synaptic physiology underlying cortical function and epilepsy, psychopharmacology and developmental basis of mental health disorders, plasticity of neuronal circuits and their pathology in neurodevelopmental disorders, neurodegeneration and neuropharmacology of CNS dopamine systems related to neuromuscular disorders.

The emphasis for the position is on the ability to develop and drive a successful research cluster that draws in other members of the College and neuroscience community.  The candidate will be expected to participate in medical and graduate education. Opportunities to continue clinical practice will be available for qualified and eligible applicants. The successful candidate will bring a fresh dimension to the study of neural health, will work with existing scientists and support staff faculty who specialize in mood and anxiety disorders, and neuroimaging research, and will provide scientific leadership and direction within the College and across the university.

The specific area of research is open to (e.g., neuropsychiatric diseases), but preference will be given to candidates with expertise in Mood or Anxiety Disorders.
