university professor

The adjective 'university' refers to the fact that this professor has been appointed at a central level and is not part of the university's regular faculty structure. Generally this person is a particularly distinguished scientist or scholar whom a university invites to give lectures and conduct research. Thus far this construction has been used by the University of Amsterdam and by Utrecht University.
