What do job titles mean abroad?

In our most recent “how can we help you?” thread, a reader writes:

There was recently some very enlightening back-and-forth in another thread (“Tenure track faculty getting TT jobs?”) about the meanings of academic job titles in Scandinavia. For example, it was revealed that it is not unusual for an ‘associate professorship’ to be taken up by a postdoc. I think I and many readers would benefit a lot from a general explanation of these titles, whether their meanings vary across Scandinavia, and what kinds of applicants will and won’t be competitive for them!

This is a great query, and I think it would be great to not only hear about Scandinavia but other countries as well. What do job titles in your country mean? Who is eligible for them, and what does it take to be competitive for them? Does anyone have any helpful insights?
