Visiting professor definition is - a professor invited to join a college or university faculty for a limited time (as a half year or an academic year).

An American Professor moves to Oxford with his picture perfect family for a sabbatical only to discover that things are not as they seem. A Visiting Scholar a range of universities and centers - including Humbolt University, Trent University, the Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy, the Simone de Beauvoir Institute, Chicago’s Leather Archives and Museum - Erica’s day job is as the Bernard J.

  I happily accepted a two-year visiting assistant professor position at Smith College to buy time to turn my dissertation into a book, maybe get another article out and make a stronger push for a tenure-track job (while keeping up with the teaching load). The visiting professor of October will be Francesco Sindico. He will give the Public Lecture on the 22nd of October. Francesco Sindico is the Co-Director of the Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law and Governance, and the Programme Director of the Strathclyde LLM in Climate and Energy Law.
