Adjunct professor (also adjunct lecturer and adjunct instructor, or adjunct faculty collectively) is a broad-concept type of professors and faculty (academic staff) in higher education, at an academic rank below the highest level of professorship.

For example, adjuncts are non-tenure-track faculty in the U.S. and in Canada. In contrast, a similar designation, Professor adjunto, does imply stable full-time employment in countries such as Argentina and Brazil.

In parts of Spain, Profesor Adjunto is a non-tenured position. There exist similar Adjunktus in Hungary. In Thailand, Adjunct (Assistant/Associate) Professors are considered "non-regular officers".
