I can answer plasma physics. It's a relatively small field right now, but it's a field that's likely to become more and more relevant over the next few decades because of increasing concerns over energy. This means that it will become better funded (the US zeroing funding for ITER this year aside) and many job opportunities will surface. Fusion isn't the only thing plasma physics is about, but it's probably the most visible area of plasma physics research today.
Thank you very much for sharing.
The only thing I know about plasma physics is Fusion, and as you mentioned its a new field and has many research opportunities.

I would really like to engage in research during my undergraduate level, I know that I should expect more reasearch at graduate, but do you know of any other areas in Physics that are research intensive?
