Registration of PhD Supervisor
HEC already has a separate process of listing ‘Approved PhD Supervisors’ who are eligible to supervise HEC scholarships holders under the Indigenous PhD scholarship program. However, a large number of the PhD faculty has remained outside this network although they may be eligible to supervise PhD students who are not funded by HEC. To overcome this gap, it is mandatory and important to bring every faculty member holding PhD degree in the network of ‘HEC Registered PhD Supervisor’, as a first step.
Non-registered supervisors will not be allowed to accept any PhD student for Supervision and Co-Supervision. Following the initial first registration by May 31, 2012; the ‘HEC Registered Supervisors’ will be required to meet the minimum research requirement in terms of publications on an annual basis to be eligible to continue beyond May 31, 2013.
HEC Registered Supervisor is a pre-step for HEC Approved Supervisor, HEC will provide whole one year to overcome the deficiencies to become HEC Approved Supervisor. In this period HEC Registered Supervisor can supervise university scholars but not the HEC scholarship holders. HEC Registered Supervisor will able to supervise HEC scholars after becoming HEC Approved Supervisor.
