Inviting Applications for Faculty Positions

Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIMC) invites applications to various academic groups (please refer to the faculty page in IIMC website for information on the academic groups at IIMC) from candidates with exceptional academic background for the positions of Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor, and Assistant Professor on Contract. The Institute is looking for candidates with significant research output and with good teaching record. Preference would be given to young candidates. Fresh Ph.D. candidates should be able to demonstrate their research and publication potential.

IIMC, the first national level management school in India, was set up by the Government of India in 1961. Today it is recognized as leading management school not only in India but in the Asia-Pacific region with regard to its quality of teaching and research. The Institute provides a very congenial environment for academic work and scholarship with a strong emphasis on research. IIMC has consistently laid emphasis on high quality research that is proven by the scholarly output in reputed peer reviewed journals. This paved ways for IIMC being internationally recognized as an institute with high priority on research as evidenced by the number of research articles by IIMC faculty that feature in UT Dallas Ranking, Google Scholar and Science Direct. At IIMC, research is given significant weightage for career advancement.

All candidates must have a doctoral degree in a relevant field (with a first class in the preceding degree) and publications in reputed peer reviewed journals.
