BERHAMPUR: The aspirants for lecturer posts in Berhampur University would now have to undergo a written test and an interview.
BU became the first varsity in the State and perhaps one of the very few in the country to conduct both written test and interview to select candidates for lecturer posts.
The university syndicate, in a resolution, suggested to the Vice-Chancellor to hold written examination for recruitment of the lecturers.
The apex decision-making body of the university, however, authorised the VC to take a decision on the matter. This is to ensure quality education in the university by recruiting good teachers. The decision, however, will be applicable only for the recruitment of lecturers, but not for the posts of the reader and professor.
Vice-Chancellor J K Mohapatra welcomed the decision. “It was a unanimous decision of the Syndicate and I welcome it, which will ensure recruitment of quality teachers in the university,” he said.
The university will soon issue advertisements for filling up of 25 teaching posts including lecturers, readers and professors.
