The University of Michigan Department of Family Medicine seeks research faculty. Candidates should have an M.D. or equivalent, and the passion and skills to be successful in a research-intensive university. We are regularly ranked in the top ten family medicine programs for NIH grant funding and also have extensive funding from additional entities.
