More about the course

Like any other PhD program you need to submit a research proposal to the scrutinizing committee. The proposal has to be an original one. On its acceptance, you are allotted with a research guide who will supervise you through the entire research work. There are a number of areas, where your research interests may lie. Some among them are: cell biology, molecular biology, membrane biology, neurobiology, immunology, embryonic development, nutritional deficiencies, pest control measures in agriculture, forensic science and so on. The scope of study and research in biochemistry is a wide one. You get to study about what goes on inside our cells and tissues, how the chemical metabolism is kept going and the various biological processes that help in keeping us alive.

Other than the coursework on research methodology and the various academic topics on biochemistry, in the first year of your PhD program you get on with various assignments, projects, workshops and seminars. Based on the research work you need to write a dissertation too.

Job opportunities

The field of biochemistry provides you scope for research based work in research laboratories and industrial labs. The US and the others provide a good scope for research. A career in academics is also what many biochemists select after their PhD and seek job in some of the top universities in the world. The industrial and farm sector also provides enough scope. Some among them are: pharmaceuticals, healthcare, pest control, forensic, pollution control, etc.
