Biotechnology in India has remained in infant stage for over a decade. Though the institutional research in Biotechnology never ceased to happen, the job prospects in this industry have only followed a downward trend. Much of it might be attributed to the flooding numbers of Biotechnology graduates/postgraduates every year, with no increase in demand at the level of limited number of “good” Biotechnology Companies. Under such a scenario, any lack of enthusiasm and determination to move against the odds can prove fatal for the future.
Jobs are always there for the deserving, bright candidates, but for that one needs to search them actively and apply to the company concerned, within stipulated time to make a mark!
So, here in this article, my focus is on enlisting some of the companies of repute in India, which are actively pursuing “good” candidates:

These were some of the major and active Pharma/Biotech recruiters in the country. The list includes the names of the well renowned companies in India and across the globe with special emphasis on those with current open positions. The actual number of Pharma/Biotech companies are so many in number that they cannot be included in a single article (One can rather write a directory on the same!). Following is a list (with links) of some other Biotechnology companies, which pursue new talents (though less actively). There are high chances of procuring a summer internship though in the below mentioned institutes. Nevertheless, one shouldn’t ignore these companies either, for these days opportunities have to be knocked out, than to wait for them to knock at your door!
Bioinformatics has also recently emerged as one of the most potent job sectors for Biotechnologists under the light of “Big-Data” being generated out of advancements in DNA sequencing and modelling simulation techniques. A Biotechnologist can find a place in top IT MNCs like TCS, WIPRO, ACCENTURE, IBM, INFOSYS as well, based on his/her profile in Bioinformatics.
Again, the list is not exclusive/exhaustive! It will be updated whatever/whenever new information is researched/received! Till then, I hope this information adds some relief to the anxious nerves.
Thanks and Best Wishes!
