I completed my PhD and post-PhD. Since last year I am working as a researcher in my country, at the lowest level of hierarchy (first out of five) It usually takes no less than 4 years of steady research to advance to the next level. These levels are named (translated to English)
- Assistant researcher
- Associate/Adjunct researcher
- Independent researcher
- Principal researcher
- Superior/Top researcher
My employer is the government (Argentina), and I work at a government-funded institute.
Although I understand that this likely varies for different countries, what designation do you believe describes my position more accurately?
