Creative Job Titles
Posted by Gordon Smith

Creative job titles were all the rage among dotcoms in the late 1990s, but I haven't noticed much movement in university designations. Most people I know are simply "Professor of Law" or "Associate Professor of Law" or equivalent designations in other departments, all of which have perfectly ordinary, descriptive names.

Yesterday one of my colleagues pointed out Peter Derkx's wonderful titles. He is a Professor of Humanism and Worldviews in the Department of the Meanings of Life at the University for Humanistics.

Universities often attempt to confer benefits to their employees by granting titles. It's a lot cheaper than increasing someone's salary. I wonder why we haven't we seen more creativity in this area. Or perhaps I have just missed it?
