The Unique Job and Career Opportunities in Forensic Science

Career Opportunities in Forensic Science


Pursue MSc in Forensic and Toxicology program from Best forensic college in Punjab i.e. Chandigarh University. Visit website for career opportunities and fee details.

Fancy an exciting career in the wing of science? Forensic and toxicology could be the panacea for you. Toxicology involves the study of the toxic effects chemicals have on the body. The understanding of how the toxins in the substance act, when the harmfulness of the toxin may occur, and the symptoms and treatments for poisoning are all part of the study of toxicology. Forensic toxicology is used to aid in medical and legal investigations of poisoning, death, and drug use. A forensic toxicologist performs scientific tests on tissue samples and bodily fluids in order to determine whether any foreign drugs or chemicals are present in the body.


As part of a crime investigating team, a forensic toxicologist will identify substances within the body that may have caused the crime. These substances may include illegal drugs, prescription drugs, alcohol, poison, metals, other chemicals, or gasses. The job of a forensic toxicologist may also include drug-testing employees, testing environmental areas for contamination, and testing an individual for performance enhancing drugs or the presence of alien drugs. Working in a lab, the forensic toxicologist performs tests on samples collected by forensic pathologists during an autopsy or by crime scene investigators. They use highly sophisticated instruments,
chemical reagents and precise methodologies to determine the presence or absence of specific substances in the sample. The field of forensic toxicology has grown to include drug and alcohol testing for employers and traffic enforcement officials as well as testing animal samples for wildlife criminal investigators and testing for “date rape” drugs and performance-enhancing substances.

Forensic toxicologists also work on cases involving environmental contamination, to determine the impact of chemical spills on nearby populations. Investigators rely on the forensic toxicologist to make reliable conclusions about the impact a specific amount of a specific substance would have on a specific individual. Often, this requires the professional to form an educated opinion based on science and experience.

Investigators rely on the forensic toxicologist to make reliable conclusions about the impact a specific amount of a precise substance would have on a particular individual. Often, this requires the professional to form an educated opinion based on science and experience.

Career prospects (MSC in forensic toxicology):

Forensic toxicology is an exciting and rewarding profession, where science intersects with medicine and the law.  It offers the opportunity to interact with other professionals with wide-ranging backgrounds and expertise.  Forensic toxicologists may work in medical examiner laboratories, crime laboratories, military, government, or private sector facilities. Other career opportunities exist in hospitals, universities, and industry.etc

In forensic toxicology, the interpretation and communication of the results can be more challenging than the analysis itself.  The results obtained are often determined using scientific tests and procedures that are complex and difficult for most juries and lawyers to understand. Therefore, a toxicologist must have strong communication skills so the information can be presented fairly and clearly in court.

A forensic scientist must be capable of integrating knowledge and skills in the examination, analysis, interpretation, reporting, and testimonial support of evidence. Forensic science technicians investigate crimes by collecting and analyzing physical evidence. Often, they specialize in areas such as DNA analysis or firearm examination, performing tests on weapons or on substances such as fiber, glass, hair, tissue, and body fluids to determine their significance to the investigation. Proper collection and storage methods are important to protect the evidence. Forensic Medicine / Medical jurisprudence is a science of applying medical facts to legal problems

Govt. Sector Jobs: Central Govt. Forensic Sciences Labs, State FSL's, GEQD, Police Department, Crime Branches, CBI, CID, Regional Forensic Science Laboratories, Intelligence Bureau, Banks, Defense / Army, Courts, Quality Control Bureau, Narcotics Dept, Universities, Hospitals, Organizations etc.

Private Sector Jobs: Private Detective Agencies, Private Banks, Insurance Companies, Universities, Private Hospitals, Security Services Agencies, Helpful to Lawyers / Advocates, Law Firms, Private Companies, Own Private Practice etc.

Job Titles / Posts: Forensic Expert, Forensic Scientist, Forensic Investigator, Crime Scene Investigator, Handwriting Expert, Document Expert, Document Examiner, Fraud Examiner, Forensic Analyst, Scientific Officer, Security Expert, Forensic Consultant, Detective, Investigating Officer, Teacher / Professor, Crime Reporter, Forensic Engineer, Forensic Psychologist, Fingerprint Expert, Law Consultant, Government Examiner, Instructor, Genetics Experts, Environment Analyst, Technicians, Forensic Medical Examiners, Technician etc.
