I am still a undergrad(second year) student. I plan on and will do everything I possibly can to become a grad student after my 4 years as undergrad because physics is what I live for :!!) . The 2 fields I am leanings towards is astrophysics and nuclear physics. Beeing a Astrophysicists has been my dream since I was a little kid. But I want to be realistic and a PhD in a field where the job market is dead wouldnt be that good. Dreams dont put food on the table:yuck: What do you guys think the job market in 8-10 years will look like for astrophysicists and for nuclear physicists? Would it be "easy" to branch into astrophysics from nuclear physics or the other way around??
