Sorry, Zetafunction. Your English is a little difficult to follow, so I'm not sure I completely understand what you're asking.

I think you're asking whether having a master's degree will help in getting a job. To which I would answer that it can. It depends on the kind of job you want and what you do in the master's degree. For example, if you want to work in medical physics, you need at least a master's degree just to get into the field. On the other had, in some cases a master's degree can over-qualify you for positions that only require a university degree.

As for research grants - unless it's a grant set up to allow you to pursue further education, you essentially need both an advanced degree and a position that will allow you to effectively pursue the research you're proposing to do, such as a professorship.
