Physics degree & Astrophysics with Particle Physics degree?
Hi I am just in my first yr doing a physical & life sciences degree, Its a 3 yr course for ordinary degree & 4 yrs for honours degree, but in the second year I have to choose in which direction im heading in, ie for physics, Chemistry, or Biology.
Im choosing physics & then after this honours degree I want to go on and do an honours degree in Astrophysics with Particle Physics.
But im wondering about what type of career I could get with this?
How hard is it to get a job in an observatory? Or a real good job in CERN?
Most people don't work in the observatory. You get a degree and get a research grant. You then write a proposal to a committee asking for research time on a telescope and if they deem you worthy, you get some time. CERN is basically the same thing.
Of course there are techs and engineers at both places, but they usually aren't the guys doing the pure science.
I think this is one of the most accurate way of having a feel of the kinds of opportunities or "employability" one has with an expertise in a certain field of physics.
