Wikidata:Property proposal/Academic rank
professorship (P803) is only for specific chairs; this property would be applicable to all generic academic ranks. I also think that a dedicated property would be more convenient and accurate than only using position held (P39) (and even more than occupation (P106), as I see sometimes).

(We could also widen it to research positions, such as Director of Research at CNRS (Q3029430).)

- Comment Can you plz elaborate on this? What makes it more accurate and more convenient? I am not sure at this moment what it adds, and then it only adds confusion. @Hannolans, Linnborghuis, Sjoerddebruin: how does it relate to your efforts around Dutch professor positions? --Egon Willighagen (talk) 09:00, 6 July 2019 (UTC)
- Oppose This property might be convienent but it is likely to make the distinction between the academic (Q3400985) and academic rank (Q486983) classes much less clear. In my opinion, it would be sensible to avoid doing that. Simon Cobb (User:Sic19 ; talk page) 17:38, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
