Explanation:
Bea:
estoy de acuerdo con que el jefe de cátedra es el "Professor". Sin embargo, "Ayudante de Cátedra" tanto en Latinoamérica como en España, generalmente se refiere a un estudiante avanzado y raramente a un "Assistant Professor", que es un título que acá en USA muchos médicos por ej. mantienen aún después de los 40 años e implica un status superior.
"Ayudante" yo lo traduciría más bien como "Aid to the Professor".

cátedra = professorship


Explanation:
ayudante de cátedra = teaching assistant (most often a graduate student, who assists the professor by teaching certain courses at the lower levels of a discipline or by supervising laboratory practice of students at lower levels)

In a certain context, cáatedra could be the department chair (head of the department), but as cited by you I would translate as professorship.
