Associate Professor David Miles has been selected as a recipient of the Iowa Mid-Career Faculty Scholar Award for 2024. 

This is the third year for the award, which provides funding and development opportunities for outstanding tenured associate professors who have established national or international reputations in their disciplines and are exceptional teachers in and out of the classroom.

“This year’s Iowa Mid-Career Faculty Scholars are a strong representation of the talent, ambition, and excellence of our faculty,” says Kevin Kregel, executive vice president and provost. “We look forward to supporting the continued growth of these four individuals and seeing how they will further impact our university and their fields in the coming years.” 

Each of the four awardees will receive $25,000 annually for the next three years to support their scholarly activities. In addition to the financial support, scholars will work with mentors to create a tailored development plan and participate in an annual symposium showcasing their work to the university community. Development conferences—covering topics such as research leadership, mentoring, and resource management—will allow awardees to engage with members of previous cohorts and institutional leaders while forming a community of scholars across disciplines.

The Iowa Mid-Career Faculty Scholar Award program highlights the university’s commitment to recognizing and nurturing the professional development of its exceptional faculty. By supporting the growth and success of these scholars, the university continues to advance its mission of excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service.
