    Re: How to become a scientist?

    Since you are interested in the research field you must certainly take steps in that direction. After M.Sc you need to pursue a Ph.d course or apply for Junior Fellowship exam. For going for PH.d you need to apply to the institute offering courses in this area. Some of the institutes conduct their own entrance exam. Check out the requirements for the institutes you are interested in pursuing the PH.d. If you plan to appear for the Fellowship exam then you need to prepare for the same. You could join some institute and prepare for the exam accordingly. You need to decide based on your interest.

    Re: How to become a scientist?

    Organic chemistry is the detailed learning of chemistry of life. Students need to have an aptitude towards organic chemistry. The candidates can have a rewarding career in this field. Normally candidates need to have a PHD to pursue a career in scientist. They can enter in to the field of research. These are mostly in areas like Pharmaceutical Researcher, Forensic Scientist, Pharmacist, Medical Doctor and Biotechnologist, Professor of Chemistry etc. Try to join a PhD in a good college and get good doctoral experience. Excellence will depend on the hard work and dedication the candidate has towards the subject.

    Re: How to become a scientist?

    A scientist is an individual who uses the scientific method. The person may be an expert in one or more areas of science.
    pace science is an all-encompassing term that describes all of the various science fields that are concerned with the study of the Universe, generally also meaning "excluding the Earth" and "outside of the Earth's atmosphere". Originally, all of these fields were considered part of astronomy. However, in recent years the major sub-fields within astronomy, such as astrophysics, have grown so large that they are now considered separate fields on their own. There are eight overall categories that can generally be described on their own; Astrophysics, Galactic Science, Stellar Science, non-Earth Planetary Science, Biology of Other Planets, Astronautics/Space Travel, Space Colonization and Space Defense.

    ALL THE BEST

    Re: How to become a scientist?

    Hi friend
    You want to become a scientist is it , as you think it is not that easy to become a scientist .A scientist should have a mind to work hard and lot of patience and wide knowledge on which he/she works , because the scientists invent new things , these inventions does not come true within an hour or day .It needs lot of knowledge hard work and practice. As i know that you have done msc organic chemistry and you want to become a scientist .
    I suggest you that you better go for Phd in a good college because you need to have vast knowledge about the subject and alone with that, you you self try to do some findings in that with dedication and hard work ...

    Re: How to become a scientist?

    As you are doing your M.sc and you have organic chemistry subject, definitely you become a scientist in any chemistry research field and you written here that you are interesed in space technology so you have better option to go to isro or to nasa but you have chemistry subject so you face some difficulty in exams of such fields.

    Re: How to become a scientist?

    Hi,

    I am not clear with ure question at all. U are master's with organic chemistry and u wanna be a scientist in space technology . How is it possible ?

    If am not clear if u wanna become a scientist with designation or u wanna hold a scientist position through which u can discover something.

    If you wanna designation as scientist / junior scientist / Associate scientist so on & so forth. Then your Msc is sufficient. You can get into any pharma companies which have " DRUG DISCOVERY & RESEARCH " branch in it. Like Dr.Reddy's laboratory, Matrix Lab, Pfizer, Aurigene discovery technologies , GVK bio etc. If there is any vacancies u can apply and get into.

    Once u join initially u 'll be designated as Technical trainee, Then Research associate, junior scientist , Associate scientist, Scientist, Senior scientist , Principal scientist.

    If u wanna discovery new drugs then u need to have your PhD and further postdoc. Then only u 'll have eligilbilities to enter into the Zone of true scientist where in u can discovery new drugs for umet medical needs like Cancer, AIDS, Cardiovascular drugs so on n so forth.

    Bye

    Re: How to become a scientist?

    Yes it is very much possible for you to become a scientist you have to pursue Phd or go for research work in collaboration with any leading institutes of India. Then After obtaining a referral you should go to a good university abroad and do research work over there. All the best!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: How to become a scientist?

    Dear friend, how it is possible that you are pursuing your graduation with chemistry and want to research in space technology. It is not possible. What you can do is, go for JRF exam or GATE , qualify it and then you can pursue Phd in your respesctive field. Also if you wishes to be a scientist, you can further go for postdoctoral studies although you are scientist after phd also. When you have qualified JRF you will be given monthly stipend of 16,000 + HRA + annual contingency of 20,000 rs. For more, you can visit www.csirhrdg.res.in

    First you get PhD in the science field then you apply fir the fellowship which is given by the governments.
    Then you get the job in your interested field and do hard work.Then may be you become that.

    Re: How to become a scientist?

    It all depends on what you want to do. Scientist is such a broad term in today's day and age. I would suggest you look at what you are most interested in and go from there.

    If you love the stars, you can look at cosmology. If you are always asking, "how does this work and why?" then I would recommend you look into physics.

    So many things to do and I have only listed a couple.

    Hope this helps you some.

    hii, if you want to become then you mustbe creative in doing things.For that you need to take help, in companies like ISRO.for there you need to write the bachelors degree and 60% marks.so write the exam and get a job there you can work for the space and give creative things,after that if you get a chance you can to the NASA to show show your potential.

    >>SO YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE M.SC IN CHEMISTRY OF ORGANIC CHEMISTRY .

    >>YES BUT YOU MUST DO YOUR PH.D STUDIES IN THE SAME FIELD AND YOU MUST GET THE PERMISSION FROM THE UNIVERSITY FOR RESEARCH .

    >>IF YOUR RESEARCHES ARE GOOD AND APPRECIATED BY THE UNIVERSITY THEN YOU CAN APPLY FOR THE GOVERNMENT AS A SCIENTIST.
