C'est ou il est et pourquoi

Mon père donne des cours à l'université. __________ prof de sciences.
I thought that il est and elle est are used for unmodified identification of profession, but in the previous sentence prof is modified with de sciences, so does il est work here. Also if we use c'est we would have to add un before prof, but in the exercise it says use c'est or il est\elle est ...etc. So I am confused.
