    first of all, you are eligible for this positions being a post graduate. You can attend exams like CSIR etc., You didn't mention your department.So I cant give informations about entrance exams related to that.

    JRF is junior research fellow. If you got selected for this position, you are under research program of some famous Indian institutes.
    you will stipend according to the institutes you join.

    Lectureship is teaching job in different institutes. You will get some amount as a salary. Here you can't learn any research work.
    But you can encourage some young minds.

    For both you need preparations.
    Exams will be challenging.
    ALL THE BEST FOR YOUR SUCCESS..

    CSIR UGC conducts the exams for JRF and lectureship 2 times in a year and a candidate must be post graduate for that or in the final year .
    On the form for this exam you will find an option for LS and JRF both to apply for the exam.
    Based on the exam a merit list is generated and persons on higher ranks are given JRF for doing PhD research work which is around 16000 +HRA for initial 3 years that can be extended to 2 years by converting it to SRF i.e 18000 + HRA
    The persons having JRF are also eligible for LS(lectureship) if they had applied for both in the application form.
    Another list only for LS qualified candidates is also generates for persons with slightly lower merit generally the cutoff difference is around 4 % percent
    For eg if cutoff for JRF is 50% than for LS would be around 46-47% depending upon the competition.
