    high centrality to the ISU Strategic Plan).
 The candidate will be a key participant in one of the centers/institutes that report to the
    VPR/ED, and the center/institute director endorses the candidate.
 The candidate is a senior hire and will come to ISU with research funds.
 The candidate brings critical expertise for existing or proposed interdisciplinary
    programs.
 The candidate is a woman (and women are under-represented in that field) or from an
    under-represented group.
