A Postdoc is defined as a position for individuals that have completed their doctoral degree. The goal of a Postdoc is to engage in additional research, training, or teaching to pursue a career in academia, research, private sector, or any other fields. Postdocs have a temporary academic appointment under the guidance of a faculty member. 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.
