After near-7-months’ thumb-twiddling, NUJS finally advertises for new VC

PIB is out, but who will be in?PIB is out, but who will be in?

NUJS Kolkata advertised for a vice chancellor (VC) on its website on Tuesday, one month after constituting the VC search committee that is to move forward a process now overdue by seven months.

For the post of VC the advertisement invites applications from candidates with at least 10 years of experience as a law professor in a university or equivalent organisation, proven leadership, administrative and teaching and research credentials and ordinarily not above 65 years of age.

Applications are to be submitted to the law school before 5pm on 30 November 2018.

Justice Arun Mishra, Calcutta HC chief justice Debashis Kar Gupta and West Bengal advocate general Kishore Dutta comprising the search committee will recommend the nominees for the post from among the applicants and NUJS chancellor and chief justice of India will select and appoint the next vice chancellor from among those nominees.

Since April NUJS is being headed by acting VC and retired judge Amit Talukdar after former VC Prof Ishwara Bhat resigned that month under pressure from students protests against his administrative performance.

The law school’s executive council came under pressure from the its student body last month after it re-constituted the VC search committee that would recommend Bhat’s successor but remained opaque about next steps on the VC appointment process in its 29 September meeting.

NUJS published advertisments for the vacancy of registrar and accounts officer at the law school on 5 October.
