Academic job titles: An international guide

Academic titles can be confusing, they vary between countries, and even between universities in the same country. We have our own ‘crib sheets’ and now we’ve begun to compile these into a reference guide.  This is where we’ve got to so far . . . what do you think?

We’d love to improve it based on the experience of our academic network around the world so do let us know where we’ve got it wrong!  Tweet us, leave a comment on the blog or even send us an email.
