Dear friend, thank you for your question, from your question it seems that you are a physicist, but you have not mentioned your academic qualifications and what is your experience and what you are doing at present. The physicist is a scientist or person who study, how the universe work. This involves looking at the way matter and energy interact, by observing, measuring, experimenting in order to gain a better understanding, of the underlying laws of the nature. People who chose to study physics because this field is fascinating for them and they find this subject very close to their mind and heart.

They want to know and discover more that how and why of what goes on in the universe and around them.

The working hours of a physicist depends upon the nature of job and place of work. The nature of job depends upon the academic qualifications. If a person is holding a post graduate degree (MSc) in physics, then he is eligible to work as school teacher, where the working duration is from seven to eight hours per day. The physicist who work as Research Associate, Senior Research Fellow or Junior Research fellow of as Technical Officer usually work for eight hours per day. Since a RA, SRF and JRF work in a research project, therefore, there working hours could be flexible depending upon the experiment or research they are doing.

If some experiment needs observation during night or early morning, then they have to plan their timings accordingly. But normally, the duty timings are about eight hours. The physicist working as lecturer also have day timing, as he or she is involved in teaching. They have to follow the usual timing of college of university. The physicist who is working as professor or scientist in university or research institutions or governmental laboratories usually work during the day. If the person is handling some research project, and observing some movement of planetary bodies, then the working hours will be in night.

The physicist who is involved in teaching and administration work during the day for normal eight hours duty. The physicist who is devoting time in research, there is no timings, the person may come early morning, or come late night and in the day time take rest at home.

The duty hours and flexibility of timings depends upon the nature of job and experiment.

Good Luck...
