The University of Michigan Concussion Center invites nominations and applications for two tenure-track faculty positions to work at one of the world’s preeminent research institutions. As one of the highest-ranked public universities in the nation, the Concussion Center is an international leader in research, clinical care, and education.

●  One faculty position is open rank (Assistant, Associate or full Professor)

●  One faculty position is at the Assistant Professor rank 

We are seeking passionate concussion researchers to help the center by developing and sharing groundbreaking ideas that translate laboratory, clinic, and community observations into knowledge products that reduce concussion risk and improve outcomes in those affected by the injury.  The Concussion Center integrates our research, clinical, outreach & engagement cores to create novel solutions that advance concussion knowledge and protocols.  All research domains related to concussion will be considered, including candidates focusing on social and cultural health disparities in concussion prevention, identification, and management.

As the hub of concussion-related activity for the U-M community, the Concussion Center is proud to be located in a renovated facility in the heart of the Ann Arbor campus, with immediate access to clinical research and wet lab space.
