The two-year, in-residence Michigan Faculty Fellows Program (a form of a Visiting Assistant Professor Program) is for highly promising scholars with an outstanding academic record who wish to develop their scholarship and teaching skills in preparation for the academic job market.
The Michigan Faculty Fellows program is focused exclusively on the professional development of each Fellow, and consists of mentoring in three areas:
The primary focus of the program is the production of scholarship to enter the job market in the fall of the second fellowship year. The additional components are aimed exclusively at fostering the candidate's professional development in keeping with the Law School’s commitment to all three elements of being a law professor. They are not intended to fill any Law School teaching or service need and can be adapted after appropriate consultation to suit each Fellow’s individual situation.
Fellows receive an annual stipend of $60,000 per year (plus benefits), an annual research allowance of $1,500, a one-time $1,000 relocation allowance, and a separate travel allowance for the AALS job market. The fellowship is open to anyone holding a U.S. law degree (or, in highly exceptional circumstances, the international equivalent).
To apply, submit:
The Law School will consider applications on a rolling basis. Please submit your application materials (and ask your references to submit their letters of recommendation directly) between September 1 and October 31 to Ms. Tracey Kuffel, Assistant to the Associate Deans, at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
The Law School will invite finalists to Ann Arbor for a campus visit, and will announce decisions by March 1 for positions beginning in the fall.
