    Former Employee - Postdoctoral Research Associate in Ames, IA

    I worked at Iowa State University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There is a lot of freedom while working as a postdoc at ISU and choosing your research interests.

    Cons

    Iowa is a rural state, so the pace of the town is slow. It is a good place to work if you prefer to work in a small, quiet town.
