We welcome students at all levels, from undergraduate to postdoctoral, into the laboratory. Opportunities for students vary depending on level of experience, interest, and availability, but can range from working on a small project during a summer vacation to developing an independent project over the course of a few years as a postgraduate fellow.

We have had many students work with our group, including undergraduates (see Volunteers for examples of undergraduate research projects), medical students, graduate students in nursing, psychology, and neuroscience, psychiatry research residents, and postdoctoral fellows.

We also welcome foreign students who wish to do a research rotation with PGENeS, although we are not able to provide funding.  Dr. Mathews is a mentor on several postdoctoral training grants within the Department of Psychiatry, and is also a mentor for the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation Clinical Research Fellowships (, which provides funding for medical students from all over the country to spend a year pursuing clinical research at UF.
