    Dear teacher,

    What does the phrase “Professor. Candidate of Science
    mean? What is the meaning of Candidate of Science?

    Thank you.
    Kind regards,

    It's similar to a PhD:
    A note about Russian higher degrees. There are two levels: 'Candidate of Science' (roughly equivalent to a Ph.D) and 'Doctor of Science' (a higher degree, entitling the person to the Full Professor's position). All those listed below will be defended in the Institute of the History of Science and Technology's Scientific Council on the History of Geography and Geology
    Doctorates in progress in the history of cartography

    Your reply is so great, Tdol. It is very kind of you. I can not find this phrase in any dictionaries, such as Oxford, Langman, Cambridge, Cobuild, The Newbury House Dictionaries. Not all, not available in those dictionaries!

    It is my new knowledge indeed.

    Thank you.

    Kind regards
