Associate Professor is an academic title that can have different meanings. In North America and universities elsewhere using the North American system, it is a position between Assistant Professor and a full Professorship. In a number of Commonwealth countries, the title Associate Professor is often used in place of Reader (used in the United Kingdom and a number of other Commonwealth universities) and denotes a position between Senior Lecturer (corresponding to Associate Professor in North America) and a full Professorship. It is thus regarded as equivalent to a full Professorship in North America. This usage is typical of universities in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Malaysia and other countries.
