May you please tell me what is the difference between
Can Visiting Lecturer be considered an affiliation or academic staff, for Ph.D holders?
In Australia lecturers are paid. Honorary Adjunct Visiting and Emeritus aren’t.
In Australia a visiting lecturer is generally an unpaid position which allows access to the library. Visitors either have a substantive academic rank elsewhere or an equivalent. Jane comes over to do a sabbatical here, Jane is appointed Visiting Senior Lecturer.
Other purposes unpaid
Honorary: retired with former rank or equivalent, they turn up for occasional seminars or coffee with their mates.
Adjunct: substantive external profession or trade, ie surgeon, coder, manager, fine artist
Emeritus: generally only professors (E) equivalent of full professors elsewhere. Like Honoraries but they’re so prolific you can’t stop them publishing full time, or they won a big gong (Nobel, field specifying monograph, etc)
These days you keep publishing or the title goes away. Often this is a way to rope in ERA publications.
