JerryLandis Posted October 30, 2009 Share Posted October 30, 2009 I am confused about what specific academic titles mean like assistant professor and associate professor (in the UK you're either a professor or you're not, and you don't become one until much later in your career). I was considering applying to Stanford, where there is only one person who would be considered a match for my interests. I emailed her asking about applying and all, and she never responded. That's all well and good, but the thing is that I don't know if I want to spend the $125 to apply there if I have no idea whether she is even taking on graduate students. She is an assistant professor - does this mean that she would be considered junior faculty and as such not able to take on her own graduate students?
