Associate what?

In the fall of 2014, I was very pleased to accept an offer to assume a non-tenure-track junior faculty position in the University of Iowa Neurology Department. It's a great temporary position while I'm on the job market, and I'm excited to be at Iowa for another year.

One odd thing about the job is the name. Other institutions call this kind of position by names such as "Research Scientist", but the title of my position is "Associate". Associate what? Associate nothing, apparently. Definitely not associate professor, and I want to make sure that's clear, hence this post.

Whatever the title, it's terrific to be faculty, even if I'm still on the job market this year.
