Cheers. That's weird! I'm used to this UK and Ireland system whereby Professor is a title earned after years of research and teaching, and awarded when you're doing something really significant, e.g. Head of Department - and you don't get called it til you achieve it. Here most of the lecturers are just known by their first names, or Dr. So-and-so, or Mr or Ms So-and-so.
