I was just wondering lately if there is distinction between Astronomy PhDs and Physics PhDs as far as job prospects go? It seems obvious to me that there are slightly less Universities here in the US that have Astronomy programs and departments than ones that have Physics departments.. Does that translate to even less of job outlook for Astronomers -- or is that negated by the fact that there are probably more Physicists than Astronomers? How about outside of academia? Are the prospects in government or private sector better or worse for one subject or the other?
