A Lecturer, a person who gives lectures, is also an academic rank. In the United Kingdom a lecturer is usually the holder of a position at a university or similar institution, often an academic in an early career stage, one who leads research groups and supervises research students as well as teaching. However in the United States, Canada and other countries influenced by their educational systems, the term is used differently and generally denotes academics without tenure who teach full or part time but have few or no research responsibilities. In all English-language regions the term can also be used in its original meaning of "one who gives lectures", with or without academic qualifications. In the Church of England it can also mean a junior clergyman.
