The College of Literature Science and the Arts (LSA) at the University of Michigan seeks outstanding assistant- or new associate professors to join the Department of Chemistry faculty through the 2023 LSA Collegiate Fellows Program (LCFP) whose teaching and mentoring, AND/OR, research and scholarship, AND/OR service and engagement will contribute to our interconnected goals of excellence, diversity, equity, and inclusion. We encourage applicants from a wide range of institution types as we seek to diversify where we hire from.
The LSA Collegiate Fellows Program aims to recruit and hire exceptional early-career chemistry faculty at two levels: tenure-track assistant professors and early-in-rank tenured associate professors. Applications AND reference letters are due Monday, October 16, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
The LSA Collegiate Fellows Program was launched in 2016 as a major college initiative aimed at promoting an intellectually rich and inclusive scholarly environment, recruiting and retaining exceptional early career faculty scholars, and supporting these outstanding scholars who are committed to working with college colleagues to build a diverse, equitable scholarly and learning community. The program is administered by U-M’s National Center for Institutional Diversity (NCID) in conjunction with LSA academic departments.
Assistant Professor Rank:
The early-career program seeks to hire in any area of chemistry (including analytical, chemical biology, education, inorganic, materials, organic, and physical). Candidates are expected to develop an internationally recognized program of scholarly research, to excel in teaching and mentoring at the undergraduate and graduate levels, to promote an inclusive scholarly environment, and to commit to building a diverse community. Successful candidates will receive dedicated research time, mentorship, research and travel funding, and cohort- and program-based professional development opportunities related to scholarship and teaching.
Associate Professor Rank:
The associate professor program seeks to hire early-in-rank associate professors or scholars in the year they are seeking promotion to associate rank. In their first year, successful candidates will participate in a cohort-based professional development program designed to support DEI leadership in their service and administrative roles.
