Membership

The University of Iowa uses the general term “postdoctoral scholar” to identify temporary, doctoral-level researchers involved in advanced training at the University to prepare for careers in academia and research. The University recognizes two classifications of Postdocs:

  • Postdoctoral Research Scholar (HR appointment code FP01)
  • Postdoctoral Research Fellow (HR appointment code FP02)

Any postdoctoral scholar or fellow with an HR designation of either FP01 or FP02 is a member of the UIPDA immediately upon the start of their training at the The University of Iowa.
