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. Our goal is 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. 

We are partnering with various University of Michigan departments or units to recruit several faculty positions, including endowed professorships, research professorships and early career professorships. We are eagerly soliciting faculty applications from highly competitive candidates at the 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 community of more than 200 faculty across departments who are passionate about depression and bipolar research and care. Departments for this search include, but are not limited to, Anesthesiology, Biostatistics, Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics, Epidemiology, Internal Medicine and its subspecialties, Math, Neurology, Psychiatry and Psychology.
