Gone SRFing

I found out last night that I’ve been promoted to what Australian academics call Level D (the scale starts at A, and runs to E, a Professor). In a regular teaching department, this would mean that I’d be an Associate Professor. But since I’m in ANU’s Research School of Social Sciences, my title will either be “reader” or “senior research fellow”. Which is enough of a mouthful that I’ll be telling journalists for some time yet to merely describe me as “an economist from the ANU”.

Incidentally, given this study, I guess I’m lucky I ever got beyond Level A.

    Congratulations Andrew. I am sure you would (in fact) get a Chair at most Australian universities and you deserve it at any of them.

    On the other hand, it does explain why Andrew is at the ANU.
