How to get into military research with a masters?

  1. Mar 1, 2012 #1
    Come June I will have my masters from a top uni in the field of astrophysics (though most of my thesis work was in statistics). I'm looking for jobs just about anywhere but I've heard good things about civilian military research.

    How does one get into doing research in something like particle or plasma physics or even observational astronomy with the military? Do they only go for phds or do they hire fresh masters grads? Should I be looking at non-military labs instead (eg pacific northwest national lab)?

    Why did you post a link to an Iranian site?

    Either jokingly referring me to Iranian nuclear energy research, or trying to get me on a terror watch list somewhere.
