Dear Friend

Salary package for biologist (technician/demonstrator/lecturer/professor/scientist etc) in private sector is not having any constrains for the deserving candidate but in govt sector there are some guidelines and salary structure along with other benefits which must be known to aspirants as below:

1. Technician / demosnstrator in govt college / university-9500 scale plus other benifits

2. Lecturer/ ass. tprofessor 15600-39600 + other benifits

3. Reader/ Associate Professor + 37600-67500 plus other benifits

4. Professor 67500 + OTHER BENIFTS

5. Scientist - Type B Type C Type D Type E-H has also salary structure like lecture and professor

Above jobs salary structure being revised as per the guidelines of MHRD, govt of india and same is applicable at state level also.

Private sector jobs (freshers to senior executive level) for biology are available in following companies

1. Public sector undertaking companies (please check the online portal)


Being an aspirant you should follow the guidelines for employment in above listed companies:

1. If you are a student of general biological students like bsc msc then you must enroll yourself with any consultancy offline online then get your cv ready but must modulate as per requirements.

2. If you are technical student like btech mtech in biotech stream then institutions have already placement cell to help you for campus recruitment. But be careful you for selective opportunity which is limited maximum you will be given three chances so you need to be awared about the visiting companies for campus drive accordingly you get enrolled.

3. At the same time you can explore the in house jobs at institution level where internal candidate is given priority according to your reputation and performance.

4. Before appearing in any recruitment drive you must know the nature of job which is being offered to you and accordingly you make your cv and do the practice as mock interview and test which is possible online and offline at institute level.

5. Never do the hit and trial for all types of available jobs which will dilute your objective and interest,

All the best

Dear Firend, thank you very much for your question. you have not mentioned your educational qualifications. The biologist could be a botanist, zoologist, microbiologist, biotechnologist, nabo-biotechnologist, biochemist, agricultural scientist, veterinary scientist, geneticist, forensic scientist, marine biologist, biomedial scientist or engineer, pharmacologist, environmental scintist and many more disciplines.

The slary structure depends upon the discipline of biology, the qualifications of the person, experience in relevant field and place of job, whether governmental sector (colleges, univesities, institutions) or multinational or private companies.

If a person is having doctoral degree and no exprience, he may be recruited as lecturer, assistant professor or assistant scientist in college, university or institute. He will be recurited on a pay scale of Rs.15600-39100 with and Academic Grade Pay (AGP) of Rs. 5400. With increase in experience the AGP of the person also increase from Rs 5400 to 6600 to 7600.Biologists

If you are holding a masters degree in biology then you will get an entry level of Senior Research Fellow (SRF) or Junior Research Fellow (JRF), the salary will be Rs. 16000 fixed + HRA (depending upon the the type of city) for first two years and then Rs. 18000 fixed in third year.

As you gain experience you get promotion, from Assistant Professor you become Associate Professor with a pay scale of Rs 37400-67000 + AGP of Rs. 9000. From Associate Professor to become Profesor with a pay scale of Rs 37400-67000 + AGP Rs 10000.

IN the seventh pay commission we will expect more hike in the salary structure.

Similarly, in research institution where the biologist is inducted as Scientist B, then promoted to C and to D,E,F and more, the salary structure is same as university but there are some additional benefits.

In private company or multinational company the salary depends upon company to company. If a biologist work in multinational company like Pfizer, Monsanto, Sigma the salary structure wil be better and much higher compared to a national company. IN these companies the perosn holding a doctoral degree can make an entry at Rs. 1,00,000 to 2,00,000 per month. On the other hand the antional companies involved in biological disciplines will offer less, the reason is growth and earning of the company.

The biological subjects like molecular biology, genetic engineering, biotechnology, pharmacology do have great job potential in multinational companies compared to traditional biological subjects; botany and zoology.

Now you have to decide, where you wish to work. My suggestion would be, increase your qualifications and experience. If you are technically and educationally qualified for the job of your dream, you will definitely get it.

With all my best wishes.

Good Luck..
