Hi all,

I have completed my PhD in molecular plant sciences in the year 2016 from the University of Edinburgh, UK. I have worked as a research associate in a reputed institute in India. Now I am searching for a new job.
The location where I stay have ample of biomedical research institutes and I am always applying. I get shortlisted but never get hired. In comparison to my field candidates completed their PhD in biomedical field are getting selected. Same is with the agriculture field.
I have tried contacting list of professors for pursuing postdoc but most of them reverted with a negative response.I am really confused whether I should do a temporary job just for the sake of experience and financial support? It is really hard to get a permanent position in my field.I am very confused. I do not want to end up with a low qualification job. Sometimes I feel I should set up my plant tissue culture laboratory then again I am diverted to job application and then postdoc fellowships.

Please help me and I hope I will get a proper guidance, advice and suggestion here.
Thank you.
