    How to translate a title

    I'm trying to translate a title of a Japanese person to English.

    A literal translation would be "Specially Appointed Professor" (of a university), although I know there is no such thing in English-speaking countries.
    It's different from an emeritus professor, assistant professor, associate professor, etc.

    It seems he was appointed as a professor by the university exclusively for a project.

    Is there a better way to say it?

    Associate Professor sounds good to me, especially if his appointment is temporary.

    You could consider Co-opted Professor.

    You also have Visiting Professor.

    If the person was hired for a specific purpose but is not a part of the permanent faculty, you could use "Visiting Professor" or Adjunct Professor" (in AmE).
