LSA Collegiate Fellows Program/Tenure Track Assistant Professor

The Department of Mathematics at the University of Michigan will have several openings available over the next few years.  In particular, we seek exceptional applicants for the LSA Collegiate Fellows Program (LCF). The candidate is expected to have an established research
program.  The College of Literature, Science and the Arts (LSA) and the University seek applicants whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education. The program is particularly interested in scholars with a
demonstrated interest in bringing to their teaching, mentoring, service, engagement, and/or research the critical perspectives that come from underrepresented educational backgrounds and pathways or scholarly understanding of the experiences of groups who are historically marginalized in higher education. Fellows participate in a program that includes faculty mentoring, professional development, and academic networking opportunities. These fellowships may be held either prior to or simultaneously with a possible tenure track appointment. 

We ask that applicants submit their materials to the department by October 3, 2022, if possible, but applications will continue to be accepted after that date and considered when possible. This early submission is strongly recommended and allows us to interview candidates in September, prior to the LCF program deadline. The LCF program considers scholars across multiple disciplines and is administered by the College of LSA. The department can assist applicants in confirming their eligibility.

To be considered, please apply at both MathJobs and through the LSA Collegiate Fellows
Program (LCF) website
. The following materials are required: (1) Cover Letter, (2) curriculum vitae, (3) research statement, (4) statement that shows your commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, (5) teaching statement, and (6) names and contact information of three references. Research, personal, and teaching statements are recommended to be up to two pages each. Inquiries should be directed to math-search@umich.edu.

The University of Michigan is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. Women and
minorities are encouraged to apply. The University is supportive of dual-career couples.
