a bit on associate professor

Reader comment on: Peter Beinart's CUNY Pay

Submitted by D$ (United States), May 18, 2010 15:43

I don't know what Mr. Beinart's teaching schedule entails, but associate professor does not mean (usually) mean part-time professor. That would be an adjunct professor, or some other title.

Associate professor is generally a rank below professor and a rank above assistant professor. It generally means that he has tenure, but is still junior.

I understand that, I'm just saying that Mr. Beinart's job, despite being defined as "full time" by academic standards, doesn't require him to be in a classroom 40 hours a week and does allow time to do work for other employers like the Daily Beast and the New American Foundation.
