General Information

Faculty Positions

Tenured and Tenure Track Positions

The Department of Mathematics and the Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology (MCDB) in the College of Literature, Science and the Arts at the University of Michigan solicit applications for faculty positions in mathematical/computational biology at the assistant professor level, but appointment at a more senior level is possible for applicants with suitable experience. We encourage applications from scientists with a strong background in the life sciences who use mathematical modeling, or apply computational approaches to large datasets to understand basic cellular, genetic, developmental and/or physiological processes. We are most interested in candidates who not only use, but also develop cutting edge models and tools from applied, computational and/or interdisciplinary mathematics to solve real world problems in the biological sciences. The faculty position will be tenure track or tenured with a university year appointment starting September 1, 2017 or January 1, 2018. Successful candidates will be expected to establish a vigorous, extramurally funded research program and to be involved with instruction of both undergraduate and graduate students. For further information about research areas in Mathematics please visit, and for MCDB

All applications must be submitted on-line at  You will be asked to upload the following materials:  A cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a brief summary of recent research accomplishments and statement of future research plans, a statement of teaching philosophy and experience, and evidence of teaching excellence for those who have teaching experience. Candidates for appointment at the assistant professor level should provide names and contact information for at least three references, as instructed in the on-line application form. To ensure full consideration, all materials should be received by October 14, 2016. 

Women and underrepresented minorities are encouraged to apply. The
University of Michigan is supportive of the needs of dual career couples and is
an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.

Assistant Professorships and T. H. Hildebrandt Research Assistant Professorships


The University of Michigan, Department of Mathematics, invites applications for Assistant Professorships and T.H. Hildebrandt Research Assistant Professorships, to begin September 2016.  These non-tenure-track positions may be renewed annually for up to three years, and are designed to provide mathematicians with favorable circumstances for academic career development in research and teaching. Assistant professorships have a teaching responsibility of two courses per semester; T.H. Hildebrandt Research positions have reduced teaching loads. These positions may be combined with other postdoctoral fellowships and grant funding, giving additional reductions in teaching responsibility. Preference is given to candidates who receive the Ph.D. degree in 2015 or later and who submit a completed application by December 15, 2016.  

Application materials should preferably be submitted electronically through the AMS website: (mathjobs). Alternatively, applications may be sent to: Postdoctoral Hiring Committee, Department of Mathematics, University of Michigan, 2074 East Hall, 530 Church Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1043.

Salary is competitive and there are also opportunities for supplemental summer salary. Please provide evidence of excellence in teaching. The University of Michigan is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Please visit our website for more information about Mathematics at Michigan.  Additional questions may be sent to



Lecture Positions

Pending authorization, the Department invites applications for a Lecturer in Mathematics to begin September, 2016. This is not a tenure-track position but may be renewed, annually for up to the first four years, and thereafter, for intervals of three to five years.  Criteria for selection and for renewal are excellence in classroom teaching.  Interest and activity in pedagogical research is encouraged but not essential for reappointment.  The successful candidate is likely to have either a doctorate or equivalent credentials in Mathematics and substantial experience in teaching mathematics.  

Please submit a curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy and experience, evidence of teaching excellence and the names of at least three references.
