Can you guide me on this
Dear Aspirant, I apprecaite your question and aspiratation. You have written biologist, it means that you must be holding minimum a masters degree. A biologist could be a microbiologist, biotechnologist, biochemist, pharmacologist, botanist, zoologist. Let me give you my example. I am also a biologist, I have done masters and doctoral degree in Microbiology. After completing my doctoral degree, I joined a research project (these are time bound projects), after that I joined as lecturer in a college. Just like you, I was having and still have a great desire to rise in my academic career. During my job of project and lecturer, I really worked hard, published many research papers, guided MSc students. This hard work got me a job of Microbiologist in Ministry of Agriculture in Kuwait. I spend a couple of of years and joind in India in a university.In university, I am involved in academics, research and other management aspects. Though I am satisfied, but still I look myself at another better position after 1 or 2 years (you are talking about 5 years).The meaning of my experience is that, if you have desire and dedication, you can acheive what you want. The field of biology is very rewarding and a person working hard, can fulfill his or her dreams.My suggestion to you would be, if you are holding masters degree, then try to obtain a doctoral degree in your subject of choice and obviously it will be your MSc subject. The job opportunites after MSc is good but not that much good comapred to a doctoral degree. The reason is that in doctoral degree you learn to carry out research project. You learn how to write a thesis, how to write a research paper.For a biologist, who wants to grow in his or her career, should take care the following points;Be in teaching, to have good command over subject of interestShould carry out research programs, so that you can publish very good research papers,Should do good research work, so that students shoudl choose you as Mentor or advisor or supervisor,If you are not in research, then u can write review articles and book chapters, this will increase your number of publications.Try to make a good group of your scientifc (like minded people) circle, try to collaborate for research and other academic activities.Definitely these points will keep you ahead in your career.Good luck...
