Faculty Recruitment at IIT Delhi

If you are looking for an opportunity to work in a world-class institution in India, you have come to the right place. As the Director explains, “The philosophy of faculty recruitment at the institute is simple- Hire brilliant minds, create the right atmosphere for them to flourish and then step back and watch them grow into world-leaders”. If this aligns to the mission of your life, apply now.

IIT Delhi identifies itself as an Equal Opportunity Employer and welcomes applications from across the world. Apart from candidates from purely academic backgrounds, IIT Delhi also welcomes distinguished professionals with non-academic/ industrial background to apply for faculty positions (link of Non Permanent Faculty recruitment) at IITD. Institute encourages applicants from SC/ST/OBC/EWS category as well as persons with disability to apply for these positions

We are hiring. We are looking for top international experts in various areas. Faculty applications are accepted on a rolling basis, and there is no last date to apply. Do note that there are several stages to the hiring process. Applications are screened for minimum eligibility requirements by staff and then evaluated by the academic units. Shortlisted candidates are invited for a long interaction with the faculty members. The very top candidates are then interviewed by an institute selection committee comprising top international experts and a nominee of the visitor (the President of India). The compendium of the recommended candidates is finally presented to the board of governors for the final approval. All this can take 6 months, and even longer.

If you have expertise relevant to multiple academic units, you can also consider applying for a joint position.
