    Physics Out in the Real World, nobody seems to care

    I recently graduated with a physics Ph.D., and I am in the process of applying for an academic job. My advisors told me that it would be easy for me to get that job, but the job application process is quite bureaucratic, and it will take several months for it to complete. I am trying to get a...

    Physics Over what field I'm going to choose

    Hello dear members, I couldn't figure out whether I should post this in the academic guidance or career guidance section, yet the latter sounded more convenient for my situation. I have also seen many similar threads but I believe everybody has different thoughts& aspirations as we all know...

    E-waste recycling question

    I was reading an article about smart phones. Here is a quote from it.. "If you are wondering what chemistry has to do with smartphones, just look at the periodic table. Of the 83 stable (nonradioactive) elements, at least 70 of them can be found in smartphones! That’s 84% of all of the...

    Other Will a PhD help me as a startup founder?

    I'm planning to get double honours in CS and Pure Math. But I'm very confused about getting a PhD? Will it help me as a startup founder? (Link to my post on academia stackexchange, but I'm still confused) The only thing that is stopping me from getting a PhD is time. I have excellent...

    Engineering Continuum Mechanics or Design/Manufacturing?

    Hi, people of PF I'm trying to decide between concentrating on continuum mechanics or design/manufacturing for my master's degree. My goal is to ultimately work in the industry, so design/manufacturing seems to make a lot of sense. However at the same time, continuum mechanics (and physics in...

    Job Skills Converting a CV to a Resume (from Academia to Industry)

    Does anyone have any good suggestions on what I should or should not include if I intend to apply to some industry-oriented jobs, coming from academia? When I was an engineer my resume had a lot more detail about the individual experiences of each job. That's fine and dandy, but what about my...

    An insider account from academia and industry?

    So I'm a little stuck. When I heard of a career as a researcher or academic, I jumped on it. Working at University and controlling my workload? Helping young uni undergrads to learn physics? Spending a few years at CERN at a specialist in particle physics? The idea really appealed to me. Now, I...

    What can I do with my BS in physics?

    I got a BS in physics from MIT (high energy particle physics), and now I'm in a graduate program in physics at a mid-tier school, like top 20-ish. I always assumed I would get a PhD in physics, and eventually become a research professor, but I'm starting to reconsider. So the tldr of this post...

    Career Options in Applied Physics

    Hello to all of you! This is my first post on this forum, though I have visited this site many times to learn from its wealth of information and insights. A bit about me, I just finished the second year of my undergraduate career and am looking forward to beginning my upper level physics...

    Is it a good idea to do a uni postdoc without publishing?

    Some university research groups offer postdoctoral positions sponsored by industry and focused on industrial R&D. That means mostly technical work and little-to-no publishing. Also such positions often don't have strict time limits, allowing postdocs to stay as long as this arrangement remains...

    Best physics PhD for going into industry?

    Hi, I'm currently thinking about what area I want my physics PhD (which i want to do anyway) to be in. I'm interested in condensed matter physics, although i'm not stuck on that idea. (I'm an experimentalist by the way.) What area is best to do a physics PhD in, in order to have a good chance...

    From a PhD to a Green Card? Going to the US or UK?

    I am a Canadian citizen planning on obtaining an MS or PhD in Aerospace or Mechanical Engineering. Unfortunately I am locked out of 99.9% jobs in the US due to ITAR issues, except the NASA Postdoctoral Program, which I know 1 person working in right now. Is there any way I can obtain Permanent...

    Physics We colonize Mars, emerging industries?

    Let's say we colonize Mars today. What will some of the leading emerging industries be? I can imagine the energy sector (nuclear power, etc.), heavy materials sector (mining, etc.) and communications sector (internet, etc.) will be robust. What emerging industries could you imagine forming on...
