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 physicist who is involved in research is to carry out experiments. He is supposed to write some research projects to the funding agencies and also win it.



The physicist also visits other laboratories to seek the facilities of other instruments, which are not available with him or in his department. The regular meetings with colleagues, seniors also a moment of freedom from laboratory work. Technically speaking, the senior physicist do not normally work in laboratories. The senior physicist work in his or her cabin and periodically visits the laboratory and check the data of the experiments. The physicist have his own team of researchers (research Associate, Senior Research fellow, Junior Research Fellow and doctoral degree students) who are his men power. These guys work in the laboratories and the physicist supervise their work.



Physicists



Besides these laboratory and research work, the physicist also have some other departmental duties, such as looking after exam department, or looking after quality control aspects of the department. The senior professor is also appointed on at he administrative positions such as Head, Dean, Director and Vice Chancellor of the university. These jobs keeps the physicist away from laboratory and research and the person is purely involved in management and administration.



The regular attending and participation in International and national conferences, symposium, workshops, and training programs. These events provides an opportunity to a physicist to interact with other scientists. These interactions do have scientific and personal agenda and it is very refreshing for a physicist. The participation in training programs is also another freedom from office and laboratory work.



In normal routine the interaction with students and researchers is very interesting and leads to sharing of knowledge. Now you got that the job of a physicist is not boring and is also not confined to offices.

The physicists can also go for the other options available. after post-graduation, one can be a lecturer in universities or colleges. The UGC NET and CSIR NET exam are organized for the determination of candidates for assistant professor posts in colleges, for junior research fellowship and to pursue PhD.

  • become an assistant professor in universities or colleges,
  • get scholarship or fellowship awards in research
  • Become a research associate or scientist
  • become an entrepreneur
  • can be a author or publish your articles
  • apply for lab assistant
  • get a job in PSUs etc.

The eligibility of the candidates depends on different posts.you need to check complete information from official website. Keep checking the different opportunities. and the work in labs or spaces is not so boring. its a exciting work which can make you feel proud.
