Search Committee

The Biological Sciences Scholars Program Search Committee’s mission is to facilitate the recruitment of highly competitive junior faculty scholars in key areas of biomedical investigation across multiple departments and schools at the University of Michigan and to develop a new generation of leaders in biomedical research.  This Committee reviews applications and interviews candidates while coordinating with recruiting departments to select a  yearly class of Biological Sciences Scholars.
