The adjunct is a name for an official's assistant . The assistants who did not teach at observatories (see also observers ), young chaplains and Protestant clergymen who were assigned to a pastor as temporary help, were formerly referred to as adjuncts.
In the France of the Ancien Régime , in Poland , Sweden and Hungary , Adjunct is a title for university teachers. In Denmark, Adjunkt is comparable to an assistant professor in the North American higher education system.
