@anon asking for feedback on directors, the IIT Council has already mandated BoG to annually review the performance of directors (see 47th and 48th council item 47.1 (i) and 48.2 (i)). Some BoG's are asking feedback from a cross section of faculty members as a part of this process, it is upto the BoG to decide how to do this and expand as it feels appropriate.

I had applied to one of the Engineering departments at IIT-Palakkad. I have not received any information/letter so far.

When will IITM conduct interviews for its current round of recruitment?

iitmsriram said...

@venkat, I have returned to department after completing 6 years as dean, I cannot comment authoritatively any more. The planned schedule is for interviews in late May and all of June, perhaps some going into early July.

Dear Prof. Sriram,

Congrats on your successful completion of your tenure as the Dean of Administration!

One among the main reasons to join IIT-M is the efficiency of the recruitment process at IIT-M, in particular, the transparency you portrayed in this forum.

The person who appointed you as a Dean of administration seem to have followed what the below thirukural says:

இதனை இதனால் இவன்முடிக்கும் என்றாய்ந்து
அதனை அவன்கண் விடல்.

After having considered, "this man can accomplish this, by these means", let (the king) leave with him the discharge of that duty.

Thanks again,

What if the BoG is defunct? No meetings, no feedback?

Feedback for higher levels...... Does it work in India?

Congratulations Prof. Sriram and thank you for all the inputs you provided here.

If and when any of you receives an interview call from IIT Tirupati or Palakkad, kindly share the information. Thank you.

Prof Sriram
Thanks for your valuable advice and guidance!

BTW
The term of the current director at IIT Jodhpur ends next year.

How long do old IIT's take to process TA bill of the faculty candidates? Is three weeks too early to enquire with them?

Congrats @iitmsriram on your tenure. The recruitment process has definitely become more streamlined, though there is still a lot of scope for improvement. There should also be more transparency and openness in the system to get rid of nepotism and recruiting good candidates. We should also offer attractive offers (higher top ups to salaries/Chaired Asst. Prof etc) to younger faculty (like what IITK, IISc, IITB does) instead of losing them to other IIX's. In fact, we should have lesser number of chaired positions to full Prof., and convert some of them to newer faculty. This will definitely increase our intake quality and will propagate down the line as well. I hope Varghese takes forward your good work and implements at least some of the above mentioned suggestions.

IIT-Pkd website says that -- Interview call letters have been sent to shortlisted candidates in Civil Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, and Electrical Engineering . In other departments the shortlisting process is nearing completion. The Assistant and Associate Professor interviews in all departments will be completed by the middle of June 2017 ....


I have not received any e-mail, so I am assuming that I have not been shortlisted. Other candidates may kindly check.

It seems IIT-Tirupati is yet to complete the shortlisting procedure.

Thanks for sharing @annon:IIT Palakkad. Good luck with your other applications.

I had applied to the Department of Electrical Engineering and Department of Mechanical Engineering. I did not receive any email from the Department of Electrical Engineering. Fingers crossed for the other department!

Anonymous said...

@Anon IIT Palakkad, I too did not receive any E-mail from IIT Palakkad. Are letters sent via E-mail/Post? the update could have resolved this ambiguity. I applied for Computer Science and Engineering Department and Electrical Engineering Department.

Anonymous said...

@Anon:IIT Palakkad, thanks for sharing the information. I also do not know whether the interview calls are sent via email or post. Perhaps someone here, who received a call, could clarify.

Good luck with your other applications mate.

Someone who has received interview call from IIT-Pkd may please clarify whether the call letter was sent by e-mail or speed-post.

The website information is a bit confusing. Normally, a scanned copy of the letter is sent via e-mail. I don't know what method IIT-Pkd Administration is employing.

Any updates on IIT-Tirupati recruitment? Any information on when the interviews are going to be held? Are the shortlisting for Computer Science and Engineering complete?

Anonymous said...

Can we expect the faculty recruitment website for IIT Madras to let us know the departments for which the shortlisting is complete?

iitmsriram said...

@anon, I expect the website will get updated as shortlisting progresses.

Hello Prof. Madras and fellow bloggers,

I have a question that has been bugging me since my mid PhD life. I am a second class masters in chemistry, but with a PhD from IISc and some good publications. My first postdoc was from Max-Planck and also went fine with some more publications and I hope to get even more publications in my second ongoing postdoc.

Question is, will I even get a chance to fight for a faculty place in one of the IITs/IISERs with a second class masters degree since all of these places demand "PhD with a first class in the preceding degree and three years of postdoc experience"? Even if I forward my CV to these places, will I even be considered for a position? Or are my hopes of entering IITs/IISERs over?

Please answer.

Regards,
Q.

Seems there is an update in Shortlisting status of IIT Tirupati faculty recruitment. However, the information is not clear. Did anybody receive interview notice, esp. for Mathematics department (at IIT Tirupati)?

I am sorry to say that, unless you have a very high quality journals you candidature may not be considered for most of the IITs/IISERs. I have gone through the similar phase, though for an engineering discipline. Initially some IITs were interested in my application, but at the later stage it was turned down and I didn't get any call for interviews - informally, later I came to know that some of the senior professors were rigid about the first class degree.

Best wishes.

Since many current faculty of IITs regularly visit this blog in addition to Professors Madras and Sriram, I would like to ask a question as a young faculty.

I joined an IIT a couple of years back and now the initial papers from my lab are coming out. Although I've sent some papers to the 'regular' journals in which I used to publish while abroad, I also want to publish some papers in Indian journals. I couldn't find many good options, but some highly-read Indian journals seem to be 'Current Science' and 'Sadhana'. They publish articles with a fairly broad scope.

My question is: is it wise to publish in Indian journals keeping in mind that the selection committee (for associate and full professor positions) will view 'Indian' and 'International' journals separately? Can someone share a personal experience?
My original aim behind publishing in Indian journal is to contribute to the development of Indian S&T.

Thanks
PS

Dear Prof. Sriram,

I know that you have completed your role as the Dean of Admin of IITM, but by any chance are you aware why IITM faculty recruitment website is down.

I had applied to IIT-Hyd in October last year and my referees were contacted sometime in November.
But I have not received any further communication.

Has anyone got interview/seminar calls from engineering departments in the last 3-4 months?

Can we expect IITM to update us regarding the faculty interview dates sometime next week?

Can anyone comment on the current situation at IIT Jodhpur?
I am concerned about the current ranking, reports on faculty termination
and dictatorship.
Also how are research facilities?

Hello all,

I am working as a post-doc fellow at NTU singapore. I have applied for IIT bhubaneshwar 8 months back and got a call for interview/seminar only yesterday asking me to appear in-person immediately next week. I think there is no option for taking the interview through skype. It is difficult for me to travel immediately. Moreover, my current post-doc funding is also extended till Feb 2019. Suppose, If am not taking the interview/ seminar this time citing a valid reason, will they shortlist me for next round of interviews, If I apply again?

I was interviewed by IIT Bhubaneswar through Skype this year. Please check with the dean and your department if they can arrange a Skype interview for you. If they do not arrange a Skype interview and you cannot travel to India then inform them that your current commitment will not allow you to visit India in such a short notice.

Any body applied in IIT Jodhpur? How long process takes? What about IIT Indore?
