exposure for research.

Good place for research exposure ..but one should know that it is a contractual job..so 1 yr should be the enough time to get that exposure after that you should have other options too.

Working in CSIR lab was my dream

1. Facility for research is excellent over there.2. Environment is good. People are helping.3. One can learn new things regularly.4. Peer pressure for work may make you feel sleepless which cause severe damage to your health. One have to understand where to stop, because lab is open 24 hrs.
