2013 - Dr. Robert Bradley has been appointed by President Mary Sue Coleman to serve the University community as a Senior Fellow in the Society of Fellows. Senior fellows are U-M faculty members of outstanding intellectual stature, who enjoy national reputations as distinguished scholars, researchers or creative artists. Within the society, they help create a spirited intellectual community and serve as models and colleagues for U-M postdoctoral fellows, according to the Rackham Graduate School Web site.

Senior fellows review candidates' application materials for U-M postdoctoral fellowships, select new fellows and play an important role in the annual selection of future senior fellows. The Society of Fellows, founded in 1970 with grants from the Ford Foundation and the Horace H. and Mary Rackham Funds, provides financial and intellectual support to individuals selected for professional promise and interdisciplinary interests.
