Say I get a Ph.D in Physics and hopefully Mathematics as well later. I want to know whether either of them are necessary for this "ideal" job. 1. Very little (hopefully none) social contact whatsoever. 2. Working with very very little people. So I am not really looking to teach 3. Money isn't a big issue, but hopefully the $$$$ isn't too low 4. I like to be my own boss. 5. Hopefully I won't have to wake up early or sleep late. 6. Best if I don't have to go out as much. If you don't understand what I have been talking about so far, my less-confusing question is, "Is it possible to get a job in both Mathematics and Physics and live as a recluse?"
