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.

Molecular & Integrative Physiology

The Department of Molecular & Integrative Physiology at the University of Michigan Medical School, part of Michigan Medicine, invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level. We seek outstanding colleagues whose research addresses cutting-edge questions in any area of physiology to join an inclusive and very supportive department community that prioritizes transformative science along with training the next generation of scientific leaders. Successful candidates will be part of an interactive and interdisciplinary environment in one of the top physiology departments in the world, and will work side by side with researchers uncovering fundamental basic biology and mechanisms of human disease using a wide range of molecular, cellular, and organismal systems.
