IIIT-Delhi <http://www.iiitd.ac.in>has emerged as one of the most exciting academic institutions in India with strong focus on research and innovative education programs. We have in last two years
launched three interdisciplinary programs (besides our regular CS and ECE programs) in “CS and Applied Maths”, “CS and Design” and “IT and Social Sciences”. For research we are starting research centers in “Design and New Media”, “IT and Society” (and maybe one on Applied Maths and Theoretical CS), besides the Centers we already have on Computational Biology, Cybersecurity, and Artificial Intelligence (which is being supported by Infosys through a multi million dollar grant).
They are recruiting for faculty positions in:
* Computer Science
* Electronics and Communication engineering
* Design and New Media (including gaming, entertainment, animation,…)
* Applied Maths
* Computational Biology
* Sociology / Anthropolicy, Economics, Psychology, and other social
sciences areas intersecting with IT
