The Indian Institute of Science is a premier Institute
of higher learning and research in the country. It has more than
40 departments/centres/units and nearly 450 faculty members pursuing
research in many areas of science and engineering.
The Department of Mathematics has established itself as an
excellent centre for research in both pure and applied mathematics. It has a small
but active research faculty, and seeks mathematicians who will add to the research
profile of the department. In addition to the regular (i.e. post-M.Sc./M.Tech.) Ph.D.
programme, the Department has an Integrated Ph.D. programme that admits students with
plans for research in mathematics right after their Bachelors degree.
The Department of Mathematics welcomes applications in all
fields of mathematics from researchers who are exceptionally motivated, and
have an established record of independent, high-quality research, for Assistant
Professorships in the Department of Mathematics.
Prospective candidates must have a Ph.D. (in
relevant area) and must have completed three years of post-doctoral
research at the time of appointment (relaxable in exceptional cases)
and, preferably, be below 35 years of age.
The salary will be in the pay grade Rs. 30,000+8,000
per month (basic salary for this designation plus grade pay) plus allowances
--- with raises each year. The total monthly pay includes:
- Dearness Allowance (DA), which currently stands at 35% of
one's basic plus grade pay (and which is usally revised every 6 months);
- Transport Allowance, which currently stands at Rs. 3200 plus
35% (the latter rising along with the DA rate).
Thus, the total emoluments, at present, for this pay grade
stand at Rs. 55,620 per month. Additionally, a newly-appointed Assistant Professor
can either opt for virtually rent-free on-campus housing, or claim a House Rent
Allowance of Rs. 11,400 (i.e. 30% of Rs. 38,000).
At the end of three years' service, an Assistant Professor's
pay is raised to the pay grade Rs. 37,400+9000 per month. At the current
rates of exchange, 1 US dollar = Rs. 46.50 approximately, and 1 US dollar = Rs. 9.85PPP
approximately when adjusted for purchasing power parity (source: World Bank).
Interested candidates may apply by sending a curriculum vitae,
list of publications along with reprints of important publications, a description
of proposed research, names and addresses (with e-mail and fax number) of at least
three referees, and any other relevant details to:
