    Just to say that I enjoyed your article in Nature Jobs recently. I think what you’ve highlighted is important for us in Indian institutions to address, both on grounds of fairness as well as to ensure that candidates are not disadvantaged by essentially arbitrary rules.

    Nice article, represents the scenario of Indian academia. Raises many questions about Indian science, and how fair is the faculty selection process in Indian institutes.
