Possible positions

You can join IIT-M either as a visiting faculty or as a regular faculty member. A visiting faculty position, up to 1 year, is at the discretion of the Head of the Dept. (HoD), but still goes through the registrar's office for approval. A regular position is offered only after you attend a formal interview. Those who desire a regular position but cannot attend the interview can opt to be on contract till they are regularized. (The parallel tracks of visiting and regular positions often throw up anachronistic scenarios and result in duplication of applications and offers.)
