Hey!

I'm about to start a Physics degree (MPhys) in October at Durham Uni, and afterwards I think I want to do a PhD.

Just wondering what type of jobs are out there (not like being an accountant, like a real Physics job) apart from working in a university doing research and lecturing (that's what I'm after, but I know there aren't many jobs doing that!)?? Like are there companies that employ people to do research (like Chemists) (other than CERN)?

I know I'm thinking far a head, I'm just wondering...

Thanks!
