the zoologist are those person or scientist who study the animals, their classification, behavior, distribution and physiology. The lucrative jobs for a zoologist depends upon the interest of the person and place of work.

The place of work could be government sector and private organization, but for a zoologist most of the jobs are in governmental sector. In governmental sector the jobs are in school, colleges, universities, research institutions and governmental laboratories.


Here again the entry is depended upon the academic qualifications and number of years of relevant experience. The lucrative jobs after post graduation will be in schools, as teacher. Obviously for females the teaching and interacting with students is a very fascinating field. A post graduate in zoology also have scope to work as research associate, Senior Research Fellow or Junior Research Fellow in a project.

Though these are time bound positions, but the person who has interest in research will certainly enjoy. The zoologist here will discover new things, new information's will be generated. The person will have a chance to publish research papers, will get an opportunity to present the research findings at public platform. The exposure to new instruments to carry out analysis of samples will be a new thing for a fresher zoologist.

On the other hand, a zoologist holding a degree of PhD will be working as lecturer, assistant scientist or assistant professor, will have an opportunity to work as teacher and researcher.

As a researcher, he or she will work on some new aspects of animal studies. You may find some new behavior of animals. A zoologist might discover some small new animals, it may be macroscopic or microscopic. Depending upon the specialization and interest, the zoologist will have an opportunity ot work in open field conditions. The person who love animals and nature will definitely enjoy such field related job. A zoologist working on nocturnal animals will work during night. There will not be any time boundations, the person will work as per her or his wishes.

In laboratory conditions, the observation of small animals under the high power microscope is really very exciting and fascinating.

With all my best wishes,

Good Luck..
