Physicists - Career Queries

A Physicist is a scientist who is trained to understand the interactions of matter and energy across the physical universe. They explore and identify the basic principles concerning the structure and behaviour of matter. They study the generation and transfer of energy. There are many divisions in physics they are atomic, molecular, optical physics, astrophysics, computational physics, chemical physics, fluid dynamics, laser science, material physics, nuclear physics, plasma physics and polymer physics. A physicist work can work in schools, colleges, universities, hospitals, research laboratories, in military, for the Government and many other fields.

Dear friend, many thanks for your question. A physicist is a scientist who deals and study physics. The job opportunities for physicist and earning, it all depends upon the nature of job, academic qualifications, place of work and specialization in physics subject. In fact the physics is a diverse area of study and scientist have been forced to focus on smaller areas of this discipline. This is known as specialization. The main sub subjects are;Acoustics; study of sound and sound wavesAstronomy; study of spaceAstrophysics; study of physical properties of objects in spaceAtomic physics; the stu

Hello friend, From your question, it seems that you are very close to the subject physics, but you have not mentioned your academic qualifications and what you are doing at present. The physicist are those persons or scientist who study physics. The basic job of a physicist could be teaching and research. In teaching the person is involved in interacting with students, colleagues, seniors, clients and customers. In research field, the physicist generally work in laboratory. Here the scientist is interacting on regular basis with instruments, colleagues and students. The nature of job of a

The sphere of work for any physicist is quite large. They are the scientists who study vast range of fields in physics from basic laws to the new technology and processes. On a typical day, a physicist works on the following things:Supervise the already going research and assist the fellow researchers in their work. They have to spend a lot of time in the laboratories while working on the experiments.Checking the emails and replying to them. The physicists are in constant communication with many organizations and have to show their work to them on the regular basis.They read the latest news in

Hi Thank you for contacting us. It is my pleasure in helping you direct in your career. I understand you want to be a researcher in Physics. To become a researcher in Physics, you need to complete a professional research degree i.e do a phd in Physics. Check yourself what branch of Physics you liked the most in your Physics degree and what area is barely researched and what area you want to further explore. Build a research topic by reading lots of academic journals and articles. the more journals you read, the more it will help you to develop a research topic. There are many di

Dear friendIt is good to know about your academic plan, having done b.tech in ECE and opting physics is not a bad idea. but you must explore the emerging alliances of physics like msc in nuclear physics, msc in nanotech, msc in theoretical physics, msc in astronomy, msc in atmospheric physics, msc in photonics, msc in nanoscience and nanotechnology, msc in energy and material sciences and many more interesting program worldwide available. One must explore the subject which has following scopes:1. world wide acceptability so must see the modules detailing 2. Having relevancy with with your back

Dear Friend, Thank you for reaching Mera Careerguide.com It is always important when we take up some courses, we will have to analyse what is next to help us fetch a good career.  There are many career options that you can choose based on your interest that you want to opt for? Below are some of my suggestions:  1. Cutting Edge: Physcists that work at the cutting edge are often driven by curiosity. They strive to answer questions like How big is the universe? or What is everything made of? Although their work doesn't always have an obvious application to everyday life,

Dear Aspirant, This is a clear indication that you are not made for Science stream. It appears that you chose Science stream just based on the 10th percentage thinking that you can be a science student and do engineering, medicine, etc. You did not at all think once more whether you really liked science subjects. Now that your board exams are near, there is no other option but to appear for the exams with maximum possible studying. It may happen that you may score less in Science stream. That will call for change of stream, either to Commerce or Arts. Now I feel, you will have to change y

Dear Aspirant, 5.7 CGPA is an average score though you have done from IIT Delhi. With Physics Masters, you can look for career in the below: 1. Astronomy 2. Astrophysics 3. Mechanical Engineering 4. Aeronautics 5. Water / Wind Technology 6. Space Technology 7. Teaching 8. Research Best wishes

The education needed for water resource development is a degree in environmental science, geology or any other related field.  There is scope for Msc Physics depending on what kind of job you are looking for. If you prefer teaching then you can take a masters in education or write the NET. If you are innovative you can try one of the IISC to do a research.

Dear Aspirant, First of all, let me clarify that there is nothing called as Physics branch in Engineering. Stress on Physics as a subject is given majorly in Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering and Marine Engineering, Automobile Engineering. Therefore, you will have to select either of them if you are interested in Physics as a Science for your future career. Definitely, Mechanical Engineering is the top engineering stream with good job opportunities available. Scope is tremendous and you as a Mechanical Engineer can be employed in manufacturing, industrial, civil, production
