This is more common among associate and assistant level professors.
  • University professors who teach in professional faculties, such as law, may not be required to have a doctoral level education. Instead, schools may seek professors who have experience or certification in the field they wish to teach.
  • Students hoping to become university professors must be able to demonstrate academic excellence at every level of study; high school, undergraduate, graduate and doctoral. Some universities require prospective professors to have made significant contributions to their field if they are to be considered for employment.

Publishing in scholarly journals is another key element of working as an associate professor.

Work schedules are often flexible and many associate professors get summers off.
