REMINDER: University of Iowa Distinguished Professorship

Reminder for the upcoming May 1, 2020 deadline: 

I am pleased to announce we are accepting applications for the University of Iowa Distinguished Professorship. The University of Iowa Distinguished Professorships recognize and reward exceptional University of Iowa scholars of national and international distinction who are contributing to economic development and enhancing well-being within the state of Iowa and beyond through their research, teaching, and/or scholarship. Selected faculty will have demonstrated outstanding achievements in their field and will hold the promise of future research, teaching and/or scholarly innovations. They will also have a record of interdisciplinary activities in their research, teaching, and/or scholarly work. 

Up to three professorships will be awarded this first year and the Office of the Provost will provide one-time funding of $100,000 disbursed over the initial five years of the appointment. It will be allocated annually in $20,000 increments to support the research, teaching, and/or scholarship activities of the awardee. In addition, a one-time permanent increase of $6,000 in base salary will be provided. The recipients of the University of Iowa Distinguished Professorship will be recognized at a Distinguished Professorship Awards ceremony and dinner hosted by the President and the Executive Vice President and Provost this fall. 

University of Iowa Distinguished Professorships will be announced by the end of Spring Semester with an appointment taking effect at the beginning of the academic year. The title of Distinguished University (Associate) Professor will be held by the awardee as long as they remain a faculty member at the University of Iowa and in good standing. 

Completed applications are due May 1, 2020.  For a complete description of the program, application process, and eligibility requirements, please see https://provost.uiowa.edu/university-iowa-distinguished-professorships
