Announcing Exceptional Opportunities for Faculty Positions in Indian Universities


University Grants Commission of India invites applications from outstanding highly motivated individuals, with demonstrated flair for research and teaching, for positions of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor and Professor in areas of basic sciences, i.e. Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, and Engineering- and Earth Sciences. These positions have been created as part of a new Initiative designed to augment faculty resources in Indian Universities. The intent is to induct exceptional candidates with notable record of research in interdisciplinary / frontier areas of science, who will spearhead internationally competitive research programmes along with their teaching responsibilities.

Initial appointments at each level shall be for a period of 5 years, extendible through peer evaluation by successive 5-year terms. There is provision for elevation to next higher rank following end-of-term or mid-term appraisal of those occupying the position of Assistant / Associate Professor. The positions are tenable till the age of superannuation (presently at 65 years ).

The University Grants Commission will synergize and coordinate with Institutions under its umbrella for appropriate placement of successful candidates. The UGC-faculty will receive emoluments at par with those of the Central University appointees. In addition, facilities (such as residential accommodation, etc.), commensurate with those available to faculty of the host Institution, may be extended to them.
