Our world-class desi R&D professionals generally maintain a low key. But when they do flex their muscles, the world sits up and takes notice.
Research & development (R&D) careers are often associated with academia and universities. However, the demand for R&D jobs in the industry (i.e. traditional & new age companies that are in the business of developing and selling products) has been growing.
