    member vs. fellow

    He is a faculty "member" or "fellow" of an university.

    Are they both correct? If so, which one is more common in colloquial AmE?

    Re: member vs. fellow

    'A teaching fellow is generally a graduate student at a college or university that teaches undergraduate classes.'── quoted from http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-a-teaching-fellow.htm
    A faculty member is a teacher in a faculty of a college or university, according to http://www.oxfordlearnersdictionarie...ulty?q=faculty

    Not a teacher.

    Do you mean "teaching fellow" is equivalent to "faculty fellow"?
