• Faculty

    Faculty are at the heart of Iowa State’s land grant mission of providing world-class education, conducting research that addresses global challenges, and sharing their scholarship through extension and outreach activities. Appointment types include tenured, tenure-track and non-tenured faculty positions, as well as clinical and research positions.

  • Postdoctoral Scholars

    Postdoctoral Scholars (commonly referred to as postdocs) hold doctoral degrees and are pursuing research and/or scholarly training for careers in the public or private sectors. Research is the primary activity of postdocs, and scholarly publications are the main tangible outcomes. Faculty supervisors mentor postdocs by assisting them with career development and the attainment of research skills. Postdoc appointments must be at least half-time and cannot exceed five years.
