No - faculty is the group of teachers or teaching members of a school or university. Each teacher holds a position on the faculty and, therefore is a member of the faculty.
That's true, but a professor is all said to "hold a faculty position" ... meaning they teach something or hold some academic position (a position) as a member of the faculty group.
You're right, but that doesn't make 'faculty' a position. Faculty is not the position - the job or employment makes a person a part of the faculty or, in other words, gives them a position on (or as a part of) the faculty.
right, so that makes it a "faculty postion" ... whereby faculty is an adjective and position is a noun. Unfortunately MOST of the questions on YEDDA are not so precisely worded as we are parsing their wording of the question. We both know and are saying virtually the same thing ... it was the wording of the question that created any ambiguity. Peace!
Keep up your good posting ... I'll be watching!
And same to you, brother!!
