Other than ensuring that your application is complete and accurate,
please make sure that you are able to give a technical seminar on your
teaching/research background as also on your plans to teach and do
research if you were to join BITS. Also ensure that the referees will
indeed write letters of reference if and when we write to them. Briefly:
Applications must be submitted in the prescribed form on BITS'
website. Please ensure that you meet the minimum qualification before
applying. However, you may consider applying if you expect to complete
the minimum degree requirements within the next 3 months, or so. The
appointment will however be conditional upon your completing the degree
Incomplete applications will not be entertained.
You must indicate the campuses for which you wish to be
considered. Your application will be considered for short-listing by the
concerned committees, one for each discipline and campus you wish to be
Once the committee decides to take your application forward, you
may be invited to give a technical seminar on your (i) background, (ii)
research that you have carried out thus far, (iii) your plans to teach
and do research if and when you join BITS Pilani. If you have expressed
interest in more than one campus, you may have to repeat the seminar at
other campuses as well. The seminar may be given in person, or using
technology (audio- or video-conferencing).
The committee may also seek letters of reference from the
referees that you have identified in your application. Please be sure
they will respond in time.
There may be a cross-discipline review of the short-listing done
by various departments in a given campus. This will be followed by a
cross-campus review by the university-level short-listing committee.
Candidates who are finally short-listed by the university-level
short-listing committee will be called for interview by a "selection
committee", one for each discipline, but common to all campuses. It will
be to your advantage if you were to appear in person before the
committee. However, if you simply cannot, the selection committee would
like to interact with you using video-conferencing or over telephone.
You will be informed in due course of time about the outcome of
your application irrespective of whether you are selected or not. You
are welcome to contact us at DeanFacultyAffairs@bits-pilani.ac.in, if
you do not receive any communication from us within 3 months of your
