Research supervisor

A research supervisor (often referred to as simply "supervisor") is responsible for the general oversight of an academic research project.

Research associates liaise with their research supervisor on a regular basis to advise him or her on the research status and receive any guidelines.

Research supervisor for post-doctoral research usually has to hold the rank of a professor.
