The Eisenberg Family Depression Center seeks applicants for open rank named Professorships, as well as Early Career Professorships for candidates with a recent Ph.D. We are searching for at least one professorship to hold an appointment (including tenure if appropriate) at the University of Michigan???s Mathematics department. Candidates should hold a Ph.D. in mathematics or a related field, and demonstrate a commitment to future research in Depression. Possible research areas include precision mental health, digital technology, data science, and prevention of mental health problems, but any area of pure or applied mathematics with the potential to impact depression is within scope.

The Eisenberg Family Depression Center, established in 2001, is the first of its kind devoted entirely to bringing depression into the mainstream of medical research, translational care, education, and public policy. The Center aims to catalyze interdisciplinary, data-intensive collaborations that produce high-impact advances and rapidly translate advances to improve the mental health and quality of life for individuals suffering, their families, and communities. The Center is partnering with various Departments to recruit several faculty positions, including four named professorships, as well as early career professorships. The Center is eagerly soliciting faculty applications from highly competitive candidates at assistant, associate, and full professor levels. Specific areas of focus include precision mental health, digital technology, data science, and prevention of mental health problems; but, all work with the potential to impact depression is within scope. The successful applicant will join a vibrant, 150+ community of faculty across Departments who are passionate about depression and bipolar research and care. Department for this include, but are not limited to Anesthesiology, Biostatistics, Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics, Epidemiology, Internal Medicine and its subspecialties, Mathematics, Neurology, Psychiatry, and Psychology.
