    Default writing problems again

    Hello again,

    Are these titles right and correspond to the general writing rules in English?
    Which is right:

    Doctor of Historical Sciences
    Doctor of History
    or simply, Doctor

    And Candidate of Political Sciences
    or simply, PhD

    And what is the difference between assistant prof. and associate prof.?
    And what is the difference between senior teacher and senior lecturer?

    S. S. Agzamhodjaev, Head of the Department, Doctor of Historical Sciences, Professor
    Sh. A. Yovkochev, Candidate of Political Sciences, Senior Lecturer
    H. I. Kila, Assiatant Professor
    S. I. Hololu, Associate Professor

    Thanks in advance

    I think the difficulty is that there is no single specific method of writing academic titles. They vary from country to country, and even from institution to institution. I have never come across a "Candidate of something".

    Someone who holds a PhD is entitled to the honorific "Doctor".

    Taking your examples, if I had to address them, this is what I would probably put:

    S. S. Agzamhodjaev, Head of the Department, Doctor of Historical Sciences, Professor
    Professor
    S. S. Agzamhodjaev, Head of Department, Historical Sciences.
    Sh. A. Yovkochev, Candidate of Political Sciences, Senior Lecturer
    Sh. A. Yovkochev, Senior Lecturer, Department of Political Sciences
    H. I. Kila, Assistant Professor
    S. I. Hololu, Associate Professor
    Both these terms are more likely to be American usage. They are not used in the UK.
