Academic rank in Australia and New Zealand
Professor - Level E appointments, equivalent to Chair Professor in certain area in the North American universities.
Associate Professor and/or Reader - Level D appointments, equivalent to Professor in North American universities.
Senior Lecturer - Level C appointments, equivalent to Associate Professor in North American universities.
Lecturer - Level B appointments, equivalent to Assistant Professor in North American universities.
Associate or Assistant Lecturer, Senior Tutor, Tutor - Level A appointments.
So, I guess assistant professor is eauivalent to Lecture. I guess it is worth applying.
Any other comments? I appreciate it.
