Tenure-Research Positions

The University of Michigan Department of Family Medicine seeks research faculty members. Candidates should have an M.D., D.O., or equivalent, and the passion and skills to be successful in a research-intensive university. High priority will be given to candidates who display longstanding and sustained enthusiasm for research and who have interests that align with those of our current faculty roster. Current faculty research interests include: 

  • Women’s health
  • Health behaviors to prevent or manage medical illness
  • Prevention and detection of disease (e.g., diet, biomarkers, chemoprevention, screening)
  • Technology to change patient behavior or physician practice
  • Integrative and complementary medicine
  • Primary care behavioral health
  • Disability health
  • Mixed methods research

Patient care (outpatient, inpatient or both) is a part of the position, as is teaching of medical students, house officers, and research fellows. The successful candidate will be expected to establish a career development and mentoring plan that has a high likelihood of leading to an independent, externally-funded research program.
