Assistant Professor Job Description

An assistant professor is a faculty member who has recently earned tenure or has received tenure.

In college and university settings, assistant professors are junior faculty members who have earned tenure or received a promotion from an associate professor position.

Many universities have three-tier tenure systems that include three ranks of faculty members.

A professor is the highest level of faculty rank, and assistant professors, associate professors, and professors are each ranked according to years of service and qualifications.

After a faculty member has earned tenure, he or she is considered a professor.

Tenure is an academic award bestowed upon a professor who has demonstrated excellence in research and scholarship.
