Aiming a PhD in Top Grad School? Important Points to Consider!

I couldn't find any thread regarding my question so I'm posting it here.

I'm in the final year of BSc Biotechnology and wish to be a lecturer of genetics. Is it possible for me to do so? If yes, than what should be the right course of action to achieve my goal.

Hello Farheen,

You should go for MSc in Genetics (appear for JAM to get admission in a reputed institute). During your final year of MSc, appear for UGC/CSIR NET exam. Once you clear that, you will be eligible for lectureship even after MSc (at a low pay scale). For higher pay scale, you should go for PhD after MSc and work on a project in the field of genetics.

You can get a PhD position with scholarship by appearing for CSIR UGC NET/ DBT JRF/ GATE (and there are other exams too). If you are a topper in your institute, you can go for INSPIRE fellowship as well.

After PhD, it will be very easy to get a lectureship role in any institute where situation is vacant.

Hope it helps
