LSA Collegiate Fellowship

The College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA) at the University of Michigan launched the LSA Collegiate Fellowship Program in 2016 as a major college initiative aimed at promoting an inclusive scholarly environment, recruiting and retaining exceptional early career scholars, and supporting outstanding scholars who are committed to building a diverse intellectual community. via the . Applicants who are at all early career stages, from just finishing your Ph.D. to just finishing your postdoc, are encourage to apply. For the 2022–2023 application cycle, the program will only consider applications from candidates that wish to make their primary scholarly home in an LSA natural science or social science department. Within this focus, Biopsychology has been identified as a particular area of interest in 2022. If you have any questions about this program and a potential fit with your research program, please contact Thore Bergman) (thore@umich.edu). Applications are due September 19 (Click here to apply).


The University of Michigan announces the recruitment of a faculty member who applies cutting-edge methods of cryo-electron microscopy to important biological problems. The recruitment is part of funding awarded through the University of Michigan Biosciences Initiative to enhance the university’s strengths in biological and biomedical research. The Biosciences Initiative award aims to expand cryo-EM research at the University of Michigan through the hiring of new faculty and the enhancement of cryo-EM facilities. 

A candidate with expertise in correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM) is sought at the assistant professor level (tenure track) for appointment in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology in the Medical School (https://medicine.umich.edu/dept/cell-developmental-biology). We particularly seek candidates who are at the leading edge in developing new tools and techniques for integrating CLEM and cryo-ET sample preparation pipelines that will aid in answering challenging questions in cell biology.
