I have an admission interview tomorrow, and have to know the possibility of having physics lectureship after the completion of MSc in maths.
I am interested in research, but want to know the possibility of having lectureship too.
From this UGC notification (page no. 22):
“…Provided further, the award of degree to candidates registered for the M.Phil/Ph.Dprogramme prior to July 11, 2009, shall be governed by the provisions of the then existing Ordinances/Bylaws/Regulations of the Institutions awarding the degree and the Ph.D candidates shall be exempted from the requirement of NET/SLET/SET for recruitment and appointment of Assistant Professor or equivalent positions in Universities/Colleges/Institutions subject to the fulfillment of the following conditions:- a) Ph.D. degree of the candidate awarded in regular mode only;
b) Evaluation of the Ph.D. thesis by at least two external examiners;
c) Open Ph.D. viva voce of the candidate had been conducted;
d) Candidate haspublished two research papers from his/her Ph.D. work out of which at least one must be in a refereed journal;
e) Candidate has made at least two presentations in conferences/seminars, based on his/her Ph.D work.
(a) to (e) as above are to be certified by the Vice-Chancellor/Pro-Vice-Chancellor/Dean(Academic Affairs)/Dean(University instructions)….”
it seems that PhD candidates in physics are allowed to have physics lectureship, but don’t know on whether it has to be augmented with MSc in physics or not.
If I complete MSc in maths, will I be allowed to write NET in physics?
If I complete MSc in maths and qualify NET in maths, and have PhD in physics, will I be eligible for physics lectureship?
