Hello. I've been looking at job ads on the internet and am trying to understand what exactly the job of lecturer at a university in GB would entail and what is the status of such a position. I see it can be preceded by junior or senior. Would a junior-lecturer just be an entry level professor with no experience and a senior-lecturer a full professor with a chair? That is a total guess though. In the USA one talks about assistant professor, associate professor, full professor... Would lecturer just be a professor? Instructor? Thanks a lot for your help.
