The zoologist (usually a post graduate in zoology or animal behavior or animal conservation subject) who work as Research Associate or Senior Research Fellow or Junior Research Fellow have responsibilities to work on the themes of the research project. These research projects are time bound projects, normally for three years but may be extended to another one year. The zoologist in research projects collect data, analyse it, and prepare the reports. The working knowledge of computer will be very helpful in such jobs.
