These days, a lot of private companies offer 6 month courses in clinical research which often land you in a related job. There are a couple in Bangalore (some are associated with Biocon). In fact Biocon academy itself is a good option.

I have spent over 12+ years in graduate education and working in companies across US and India. In my opinion, after an undergraduate degree in biotechnology, I think there are plenty of opportunities to go after that most students/faculty oversee. Most faculty in biotechnology think that, the next steps after an undergraduate degree is to go for Phd/Msc. I strongly disagree with this.
In addition to courses such as Master`s/Phd in
  • Biotechnology, Genetics, Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, Pharmacology etc…
I would suggest you to also look at the following options…
  • Patent Agent/Lawyer/Attorney (Biotech + Legal Experience/Degree)

  • Management (Biotech + Experience + Good MBA Degree)

  • Biomedical/Biomechanical Engineer ((Biotech + Experience/Degree in Bio related Product Engineering)

  • Bioprocess Engineer (Biotech + Experience/Specialization in downstream processing). This area has lot of potential.

  • Clinical Research Related Jobs (Biotech + Experience/Specialization in Clinical Trials)

  • Clinical Data Analysts (Biotech + Experience/Specialization in SAS/R/SPSS)

  • Bioinformatics (Biotech + Specialization in Bioinformatics)

  • Sales & Marketing-Biomedical Equipments/Assays (Biotech + Experience in Sales

  • and there are many more…..
Also with good experience you can also look at entrepreneurship as an option. There are lot of funding available from the Indian Government to promote biotech startups.

If you have any questions, you can reach out to me anytime
