  • The title of reader in the United Kingdom and some universities in the Commonwealth of Nations, for example Australia and New Zealand, denotes an appointment for a senior academic with a distinguished international reputation in research or scholarship. It is an academic rank above senior lecturer/associate professor, recognising a distinguished record of original research. In the British ranking, a reader could be seen as a professor without a chair, similar to the distinction between professor extraordinarius and professor ordinarius at some European universities, professor and chaired professor in Hong Kong and "professor B" and chaired professor in Ireland. Both readers and professors in the UK would correspond to full professors in the US. At some universities in Commonwealth countries such as Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Malaysia, the title Associate Professor is used in place of Reader, ranking above Senior Lecturer.
