In addition, we also request a statement that addresses any prior experience with or potential contributions to promoting diversity. Please submit your application materials, along with a copy of your CV, addressed to Department Chair, Dawn Kleindorfer, MD, by way of Amy McKeighan(link sends e-mail)

Brain Cancer (BIBC) Program

The University of Michigan Biosciences Initiative and collaborating units recently awarded a combined intramural grant of $15M to the BioInnovations in Brain Cancer (BIBC) Program. This multi-disciplinary group is rooted in collaborations between brain cancer experts, clinicians, and technologists to drive innovation and translation that will deliver technological breakthroughs that impact brain cancer patients’ lives. The BIBC is currently soliciting applications for tenure track faculty positions at any level.

Neurology

The Department of Neurology at the University of Michigan seeks a fellowship-trained and ABPN-certified academic Movement Disorders neurologist for appointment in the tenure track at the associate or full professor level. This position is supported in part by a new endowed professorship (Karp Chair in Movement Disorders). Qualified candidates may also have an opportunity for shared leadership responsibility within a large and highly productive Division of Movement Disorders.

CDB & LSI

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.

MCDB

Area of Focus: Cellular or Molecular Neuroscience

The Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology (MCDB) in the College of Literature, Science and the Arts at the University of Michigan solicits applications for a faculty position at the assistant professor level, but appointment at a more senior level is possible for applicants with suitable experience. The faculty position will be tenured or tenure track with a university year appointment starting August 29, 2022 or January 1, 2023.  Successful candidates will be expected to establish a vigorous, extramurally-funded research program and to be involved in instruction of both undergraduate and graduate students.

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.
