Recruitment of teachers likely
G. NARASIMHA RAO
Admissions into the PG courses of Andhra University concluded and the campus is in the process of getting back into its normal academic activity after summer vacation and the freshers attending classes and getting used to the university atmosphere. As the academic year has commenced, Vice-Chancellor B. Satyanarayana is reportedly planning to fill up the 127 vacancies of teachers posts, a process pending for a long time. A notification on recruitment is expected very soon. Those waiting for this opportunity for a long time and heard about the university's plans for recruitment wish that this comes true at least this time. Some were of the opinion in the past that the AU administration would not go for recruitment of teachers as it would not be further burdened as is implementing enhanced pay-scales for the teachers. But later there are strong indications that the vacancies of teachers will be filled up. Along with recruitment of teachers, the AU administration is expected to conduct the Career Advancement Scheme interviews. Some teachers who are due to get promoted as Professors or Associate Professors will be benefited. The V-C is also against retired professors and other senior faculty members joining their respective departments as Teaching Associates. Prof. Satyanarayana wants youngsters who have completed their PG or PhDs and on the lookout for a job be given an opportunity. NSS Advisor
