Individuals in a Postdoc position continue their individual studies or contribute to research carried out at Illinois State University. Postdoctoral research is considered as an essential part of the scholarly mission of ISU; it is expected to produce relevant publications in peer-reviewed academic journals or conferences and contribute to the advancement of its respective field of research.
