Inv. Tit. - what in the hell is that?

The UNAM counts with a kind of "ranks" which exists separately for lecturers (profesor), researchers (investigador) and technicians (técnico académico).

Investigador/
Profesor/
Técnico
Asociado A
Asociado B
Asociado C
Investigador/
Profesor/
Técnico
Titular A
Titular B
Titular C

The lowest rank is Asociado A, the highest Titular C. Payment and the right to participate in commissions, councils etc. depends greatly on the level. Requirements to obtain a position as lecturer or researcher are (as I believe) somehow equivalent but lower for tecnicians. Requirements to be able to rise within the hierarchy vary from institute to institute.
