HEC helps placement of 60 PhD scholars
ISLAMABAD, April 30(Daily Times): The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has processed the
cases of 60 fresh PhD scholars for their placement at various universities and
degree awarding institutions across the country.
Eighteen PhD scholars
have already joined the universities, 24 have been accepted by the host
institutions and cases of 18 more, who are returning from abroad after
completing their studies, are under process.
All the placements made so
far are of non-HEC scholars as the HEC's 'Placement of Fresh PhD Scholars
Returning from Abroad Programme' is open for HEC as well as non-HEC scholars.
The programme aims at stopping the brain drain by providing occupation to
foreign qualified Pakistani scholars on their return home.
