Dear Friend

Thank you for reaching Mera

There are many ways to find Job as there are many Job opportunities for Physicist.

  • Physicists and astronomers held about 18,000 jobs in 2006. Physicists acoounted for about 17,000 of these while astronomers accounted for only about 1700 jobs. many Physcists and astronomers held faculty positions in colleges and universities. Those classified as postsecondary teachers are not included in these employment numbers.
  • About 38 percent of physicists and astronomers worked for scientific research and Development services firms. The Federal government employed 21 percent, mostly in the US Department of Defense but also in the national Aeronautics administration NASA and in the US Departments of commerce, Health and Human services and Energy.
  • Other Physicist and astronomers worked in colleges and universities in non faculty usually Research, positions or for state governments, infromation technology companies, Pharmaceutical and Medicine manufacturing companies or Electronic equipment manufacturers.
  • Although Physicists and Astronomers are employed in all parts of the country, most work in areas in which universities. large research laboratories or observations are located.
  • In recent tears the number of doctorates granted in physics has been soemwhat greater than the number of job openings for traditional physics research positions in colleges and universities and in research centers.
  • Recent increases in undergraduates physics enrollments may also lead to growth in enrollments in graduate physics programs so that there may be an increase in the number of doctoral degrees granted that could intensify the competition for basic research positions. However, demands has grown in other related occupations for those with advanced training in physics.
  • Prospects should be favorable for physics in applied research, Develoment and related technical fields.
  • opportunities should also be numerous for those with a masters degree, particularly Graduates from programs preparing students for Federal work in applied research and Development, product design and manufacturing positions in private industry. Many of these positions, However will have titles other than Physicist such as engineer or computer scientists.
  • People with only a Bachelors degree in Physics or astronomy are usually not qualified for Physics or astronomy research jobs. but they may qualify for a wide range of positions related to engineering, Mathematics, computer science, envirnomental science and some non science fields such as finance.
