IKS Recruitment

The Centre for Indic Studies, Indus University, Ahmedabad invites applications for full-time faculty positions from bright and highly motivated candidates with a sound aptitude for high-quality research in Indic Knowledge System.

Indic Knowledge System (IKS)

Indic Knowledge System is a collective quest of a very wide range of themes by Indians. Since the dawn of our civilization, Indians have been inquisitive and
engaged in open-minded enquiry of issues ranging from numbers, language, planets, matter to mind, health, ecology and so on. Their quest took them from theminutest particles to the grand scheme of cosmos; from consciousness to matter;from music to language; from pragmatic issues to the ultimate reality. 

They proposed the holistic nature of knowledge where disciplines knew no boundaries. Such a comprehensive quest for a vast knowledge system has no parallel in the history of humankind.
