ISU Postdoctoral Association

The ISU Graduate College is the administrative home for postdoctoral research associates and is committed to providing you an outstanding postdoctoral experience.  Iowa State currently trains approximately 300 postdoctoral research associates in a variety of disciplines, including the biological and agricultural sciences, engineering, physical sciences, social sciences, and veterinary medicine as well as several institutional and regional research institutes, and national facilities like the Ames Laboratory (a U.S. Department of Energy research facility).

Postdoctoral training is a collaborative effort involving the Graduate College, the Office of the Provost, the Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development, academic colleges, and the many faculty advisors and mentors who oversee the training activities of our postdoctoral associates. Check back often at this web site for upcoming orientations, workshops, and other mentoring opportunities for your training experience.
