Section 2: Job Summary About the Life Sciences Institute: The Life Sciences Institute (LSI) is a multi-disciplinary research institute at the University of Michigan (www.lsi.umich.edu), strategically located as a bridge between the medical campus and the central-campus schools and colleges. Our mission is to advance the understanding of the fundamental processes of life, and to pioneer new ideas to improve human health. The LSI’s world-class faculty members hold joint appointments at the LSI, where their labs are located, and a variety of schools and colleges across the university. They bring broad and diverse expertise — ranging from cell biology to medicine, from chemistry to structural biology. The institute’s philosophy is to provide our faculty and their teams with superior scientific tools and administrative support, allowing them to spend more time focused on what really matters — their research. The institute’s administrative staff supports all aspects of unit operations including facilities, IT, human resources, finance, research administration, academic programs, communications and development. In addition to faculty labs, the LSI houses several core technology labs that support the research enterprise of the entire university, including a small molecule discovery and analytics laboratory (Natural Products Discovery Core: www.lsi.umich.edu/natprod) high-throughput screening center (Center for Chemical Genomics: www.lsi.umich.edu/ccg), a comprehensive cloning and macromolecular X-ray crystallography facility (Center for Structural Biology; www.lsi.umich.edu/csb), and a state-of-the-art cryo-electron microscopy facility (www.lsi.umich.edu/cryoEM). The LSI also plays a key role in administering campus-wide programs like the U-M Program in Chemical Biology, Center for the Discovery of New Medicines and Michigan Life Sciences Fellows.
