In the Czech Republic there are two “academic-pedagogical degrees” - “docent” and “profesor”. These correspond with the posts of Associate Professor and Full Professor respectively, and are awarded not only for academic achievements, but also on the basis of the applicant’s teaching activities. The degree “docent” is awarded by the Rector on the basis of a procedure known as habilitation. The degree “profesor” is awarded by the President of the Czech Republic on the basis of a nomination. Additionally there are three purely academic degrees - Honorary Doctorate (doctor honoris causa), Emeritus Professor, and Visiting Professor. Charles University also awards the honorary posthumous degrees “docent in memoriam” and “profesor in memoriam”.
