Well, being biologist has tremendous potential to work for public and private sector organizations like National Institute of Plant Genome Research sponsored by DBT, Govt. of India, Institute of Cell Biology, National Institute of Immunology, Center for DNA Finger printing and Diagnostics, Biotechnology Park, Biotech Consortium and India Limited, several research institutes sponsored by Department of Biotechnology, Indian Council of Agriculture Research, Indian Council of Medical Research,Central Scientific and Industrial Research, Department of Sciences and Technology, Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, etc. are established everywhere in the country and conducting research and development in biology. Biological Research includes different streams based on the mandates of government and need of society, though contemporary research advocates the multidisciplinary and trans-disciplinary research.

Irrespective of your current academic background I must give you a broad knowledge regarding the eligibility criteria and the prospect of such organizations:

1. After 12th with biology (botany and zoology) either you will pursue basic sciences (BSc/MSc in Botany/Zoology/Marine/Life Sciences/Biochemistry etc) or Technical/bioengineering (B.Tech/M.Tech) and then must qualify GATE (engineers) and UGC-NET/JRF/SRF (Scientist and engineers both) as per the constitutional requirements to get enrolled as research scholar in these public sectors where you get the opportunity to obtain Ph.D degree with descent emoluments (18000-20800 monthly).

2. To join these institutes at junior level your MS/MSc --B.Tech/MTech degree can help you but you have to show certain credibility in research by showing potential dissertation or publications at international repute.

3. As you know to get entry into these organizations is a tough task and number of candidates with such degree increased day by day so you have to give your best to qualify the essential requirements and then you join as a potential biologist. Research job is very confined and needs to develop the gravity of work for that exercise your fundamental must be clear with all the basic sciences-maths, physics, chemistry only then you can understand the applied topic in biology.

4. You must explore these public sector for biological research and understand the profile of employed faculty and scientist those are having specific interest and profile I hope it will help you to explain your all queries.

Dear Aspirant, a biologist a lot of scope in public sector organizations. In India the biology has many sub disciplines such as Microbiology, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Genetics, Bioinformatics, Zoology and Botany. All these subjects have lot of scope in public sectors such as universities, colleges, research institutions and research organizations.
Lets me tell you about job opportunites in universities. As biologist (Microbiologist, Biotechnologist) you can compete for an entry level of Lecturer or Assistant Professor. After selecting you will be involved in teaching and research.
In research institutions, you can join as scientist, and here nature of job of a biologist will be research. Therefore, a person having passion for research and looking for new things has lot of scope and person will get job satisfaction.
In India there is endless list of public sector organizations having job opportunities. This includes the all the state universities, state agricultural universities, central government universities, central governmental research organizations, such as Council of Scientific and Industrial research (CSIR), Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR), Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) and many more. These govrenmental organizations offer job opportunities for technical as well non technical persons.
Besides a biologist (zoologist, botanist) may seek job opportunity in zoos, museums, national parks, wild life conservation sancturies.
Dear friend, here you have to think and then plan which field you want to choose. Do you wish to work as lecturer or scientist. If you wish to work as lecturer, then collge jobs will be suitable for you. Here you will be interacting with students, colleagues, and possibly with clients also. You will be involved in teaching only and the scope of research will be very less.
If you have passion for science then a research institute will be a better option for you, obviously, the teaching work will be very less or may be there will be not at all teaching. If you have passion for teaching and research then the universities will be a suitable place for you.
Here you can quench the thirst of your academic as well as reseach aspects. One must understand that to get entry into public sector organizations is very competitive and tough. The persons with high academic caliber only gets selection.

Best wishes...
