The Best Place for Science

Posted on 05 Sep' 16 by Kalaivanan Nagarajan
Batch of Jan. 1, 2016 | Ph.D Biology Integrated
I have been here for last 5 years as a graduate student. The laboratory is well equipped with advanced instruments which are very necessary for peaceful research. Access to most of the scientific journals with 24 hours wi-fi facility makes the researcher's life completely engaged with the research. The place is very good to pursue the academics in science.

I want to pursue teaching.Can I pursue teaching after IISER OR IISC ?

Aditya kumar Student Expert 25th Aug, 2019
Hello there!


If you are someone who loves science and Research then iiser is the best for you . IISERs offer the best training in basic sciences and unparalleled exposure to advanced analytical techniques, the fact that these Institutes are relatively new is the main reason for the lack of awareness about their existence. After doing a PhD, post your BS-MS course, you can join any CSIR labs or University or research lab as a staff scientist or principal investigator.
If you want to teach in future,  even then iiser is good for you , After completing your BS-MS, you can teach at coaching classes like FIT JEE, etc. This is considered a lucrative job as the pay packages are good.  Teaching job in any school/University after qualifying the requisite exams like UPSC, B. Ed, NET, etc.


What is the level of competition in kvpy exam (means how many will apply and how many will get admission into IISC ,IISER)

Siddhi Arora Student Expert 24th Aug, 2019

Hey Aspirant!

Every year 40k-50k students apply for kvpy and  around 3.3 k people got selected in KVPY written exam, and 2.9K got selected in the interview round. 

It's just a vague guess, because it all depends on the number of students that apply for this exam, and the ones who get scholarships. Also, their reservation criterias and their intelligence.

Best of luck!
