Around 800 PhD scholars from various local and international universities are looking for their jobs since the past many years.
Interestingly, the HEC authorities repeatedly claimed it officially that the country has shortage of 38,000 PhD scholars in different sectors. To produce more than 38,000 PhD scholars was also made part of vision 2025 by the last government.
The HEC will also provide an opportunity to PhD degree holders to adjust in foreign universities through the Interim PhD Fresh Programme.
The scholars regretted that the universities do not create proper vacancies for young PhD doctors.
