I am a student of B.Sc. final year with Biology. I want to know what career I can choose after my graduation for a good salary package or should I pursue my M.Sc. degree? If M.Sc., then from which col

A bachelor’s degree in one of the fields of biology is sufficient for advanced technician jobs in the medical field, lab/research assistant positions, or testing and inspection jobs. You’ll work as part of a big project team. Large industries that deliver health care products seek biology graduates for manufacturing marketing and sales positions.

But for other positions in the scientific field, for example, jobs in management, sales, inspection, service, and some in applied research, you need to have an advanced degree. You may be involved in planning and administrating programmes for testing food and drugs or directing activities at zoos or botanical gardens. You may test and inspect foods, drugs, and other products or write for technical publications. After a few years of experience, you may work as a consultant to business firms or to the government. A Ph.D. is needed for college teaching, independent research, and for advancement to administrative positions.

I am a student of class 11. I have opted for PCB with Economics. I am not very sure of doing MBBS. I want to know the career options available in Biology and their scope in India.

A study in biology provides a foundation for various healthcare careers: physicians, dentists, pharmacists, physical and occupational therapists, medical technologists, college professors and administrators, research scientists, nursing, veterinary doctor, agriculturist, nutritionist, pharmacist and bio-medical engineer, etc. but besides these, there are several other general career areas for biologists. The growing emphasis on environmental preservation is creating another career path for biologists: conservation, wildlife study and occupational safety.

A bachelor’s degree in one of the fields of biology is sufficient for advanced technician jobs in the medical field, lab/research assistant positions, or testing and inspection jobs. They work as part of a big project team. They may operate laboratory equipment, design and construct new equipment, make drawings, build models and assist in interpretation of results.

Large industries that deliver healthcare products seek biology graduates for manufacturing, marketing and sales positions. Some biological science graduates work in management or administration, planning programmes for food and drug testing or managing a botanical garden. An undergraduate degree can also be used for non-technical work in writing, illustration, sales, and photography.

Those having an interest in computers can also go for Bioinformatics, a field which promises to change the way we diagnose and treat diseases and provide healthcare. This is a relatively new discipline in which huge discoveries are being made and are waiting to be made.
