In summary, the speaker is a recent graduate with an MS in condensed matter physics, with a focus on magnetic measurements of MgB2 and iron nanocomposites. They are seeking job opportunities in R&D or test and evaluation within the scientific community, preferably within the US. They have been searching for opportunities in the semiconductor industry, but are also open to smaller companies with a focus on applied physics. They appreciate any help or suggestions in their job search.

Hello,

I recently graduated with an MS in CMP, and my research was in the production of and magnetic measurements of MgB2 and iron nanocomposites. I have been trying to find companies that would be interested in hiring a CMP masters graduate. Does anyone know any companies or national labs that are hiring in R&D or test and evaluation areas?

I have a broad range of interests and I am not excluding positions outside of CMP, but I would like to remain within the scientific community. I am free to move anywhere within the US or internationally, however I would prefer to remain stateside.

Any help that anyone can offer is very much appreciated.

Thank you all so much!

I assume by CMP you mean condensed matter physics. Have a look at companies in the semiconductor industry. If you've studied magnetic nanoparticles there are probably hard drive manufacturers which would be very interested in your experience.

Thank you for your response daveyrocket. Sorry, yes I meant condensed matter physics. I have been searching many of the major semiconductor companies job sites, but haven't had any luck with them to date.

I was wondering if anyone knew of any smaller companies looking for CMP expertise where there won't be as many applicants and a better chance of getting some more "real-world" experience with applied physics.
