I was not sure whether to put this here or not. I am a BS physics student, originally I planed to pursue Ph.D but due to financial problems first I need to get a job and then maybe a Ph.D? However, I was wondering how is medical physics for getting a job? and I have some questions 1) How competitive is it to get a well paying job? 2) As want to live in scandinavia (Norway to be precise), are there jobs for medical physicists there? 3) How can I get into R&D of machines used for medical treatents? Edit: Also can I later do Ph.D in a field related to Physics and Astronomy after getting a master's in medical physics?
