We are excited to announce that the faculty recruiting cycle for the BSSP is officially open.
How To Apply:
Identification of potential BSSP candidates will take place at the level of units and unit-based searches, across all biosciences units at the University of Michigan. The unit can advance the candidate's application materials to the BSSP Committee for assessment of whether the candidate can be considered further for BSSP scholar designation.
Units (and research areas) that are currently hiring at Assistant Professor level during the 2023-24 cycle:
Cell and Developmental Biology
Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics
Human Genetics (Genetics and Genomics)
Molecular and Integrative Physiology
Microbiology & Immunology (Bacteriology and Virology)
Neurosurgery (Broad- Glioma, Intracerebral hemorrhage, AI applications in Neurosurgery, Neuroengineering, Neurosurgical Innovations (collaboration with BME and ME)
Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences
Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (Disability, Pain, Function, Rehabilitation)

Interviews typically take place between November through March within each unit/department. Appointees are expected to establish and maintain an outstanding research program, to bring or develop substantial external research funding, and to become leaders in departmental and program activities, including teaching at the medical, graduate, and/or undergraduate levels.
Candidates must have the following qualifications:
- A PhD, MD, or other terminal degree
- A minimum of two years of postdoctoral experience (or equivalent)
- Evidence of superlative scientific accomplishment and scholarly promise
All faculty recruited through BSSP are appointed at the assistant professor level and must not have had a previous tenure-track faculty appointment. The final determination of scholar designation for biosciences candidates being recruited to non-Michigan Medicine units will be made by the Biosciences Initiative Coordinating Committee.
