What in detail is the sound designer responsible for in film?

I'm a young director and i'm pretty much familiar with what sound design is, what i'm wondering is pretty much where does the editor's job end and sound designer's begin... i mean is the sound designer responsible for syncing dialogue / adding sound effects etc? Or does that person just fix sound levels and clean up noise? I looked around online to find a detailed description of that job but couldn't find much what i'm looking for. If anyone could give me a detailed breakdown of that the job of a sound designer consists of i'd really appreciate it. Serious answers only please.
