Dr. Tuhin Kumar Saha did  B.Sc (1983) and  M.Sc (1985) from Visva-Bharati University and got first divisions  in both . His special paper was  Environmental Physiology and Toxicology . Having qualified NET in 1986 , he joined Environmental Physiology laboratory of Prof. Asit  Baran Das in a CSIR project as a Junior research fellow in 1986 . He was awarded Ph.D degree in September , 1993 . The title of the Ph.D thesis was “Effect of a sub-lethal concentration of ambient ammonia-nitrogen  on protein metabolism of an Indian air-breathing fish , Channa punctatus (Bloch)”. Alteration in the seasonal protein levels in different tissues were experimentally designed to be explained through incorporation of 14C-leucine and rates of protein synthesis and breakdown .

Prior to joining this service (WBES) , he worked as CSIR Research Associate  and then lecturer in a non Government college for two and half years . He joined WBES on December, 1999. His first posting in WBES was in  Krishnanagar Government College where he served  till  May , 2007 .   His next posting was in Darjeeling Government College where he served till August , 2011 .
